KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS

A/PROF GARY KILOV

Can we slow the progression of T2D?

Join A/Prof Gary Kilov as he presents a provocative discussion on whether it is possible to slow the progression of T2D. Gary will recap the pathophysiology of T2D and discuss the importance of glycaemic and weight management. What is the impact of early and intensive glycaemic and weight control and can intensive management delay the progression of T2D? Learn about the classes of T2D agents that may be most effective for managing T2D.
