Abstract

© 2017 Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. It has long been assumed that type 2 diabetes is caused by the combined effects of insulin resistance and loss of pancreatic islet beta cells. Much therapeutic effort has been directed towards decreasing insulin resistance even though results have been generally disappointing. Now that type 2 diabetes can be understood as a simple reversible condition, its component parts can be examined during the period of return to normal glucose tolerance.
