|Inflammation is the problem...not the fat tummy...|

"Is it possible to reverse Type 2 diabetes?"

It is rather simplistic the view of Prof Lean who says "the easiest indicator of someone at risk of type 2 diabetes is a fat tummy". What about all the thin people with DT2 ? ? The driving force of DT2 is inflammation. Medical doctors need to have a more holistic view on tackling inflammation since inflammation is the trigger to a plethora of diseases like DT2, cancer, CVDs, high blood pressure and obesity. Chronic diseases need holistic approaches...not just looking at a "fat tummy".
