Paul Zimmet.
Professor Paul Zimmet, Department of Diabetes at Central Clinical School, presented at the Singapore Ministerial Conference on Diabetes, held 26-27 November 2018, and was interviewed about the global epidemic of diabetes by Channel News Asia. In the interview Prof Zimmet answered the following questions:
  • How serious is the diabetes situation worldwide?
  • What are the implications of that on the way we're managing diabetes?
  • We understand that by 2030, insulin will be beyond the reach of 41 million of the adults with type 2 diabetes who will need it worldwide. How critical is that problem, and how can we address that?
  • Back to the roots of diabetes - we understand that genes might play a role in causing diabetes but lifestyle choices are important as well. What are your thoughts - which factor matters more? And what can we do to lower our risk of getting diabetes?
