Dr. Little to Present Evidence that Type 2 Diabetes Can Be Reversed
Type 2 diabetes, which affects over 350 million people worldwide, is typically thought of as a chronic progressive disease that must be managed for life. However, exciting new research indicates that type 2 diabetes can be reversed using targeted diet therapy. In order to implement such therapeutic nutrition to reverse diabetes, new ideas for delivery and implementation are needed.

Pharmacists are highly knowledgeable in diabetes management/medications and are well-positioned to help in the community, yet are under-utilized in traditional diabetes care models. Community pharmacist-led therapeutic nutrition for diabetes reversal is an innovative and scalable new idea that could help deliver targeted diet therapy in order to tackle the diabetes epidemic. Dr. Jonathan Little's talk will use evidence to demonstrate that type 2 diabetes is reversible and present results from an ongoing research study evaluating pharmacist-led therapeutic nutrition being conducted in British Columbia, Canada.
