    In spring Circle there is an article In pursuit of the Holy Grail where 4 researchers who are currently researching Diabetes are highlighted. One of these is Dr Evelyn Parr at the Mary Mackillop Institute for Health Research at The Australian Catholic University  who is exploring how fasting can improve blood glucose and insulin responses in people living with type 2 diabetes.

    What are your thoughts on fasting and Type 2?

    Associate Professor Samantha Hocking at the University of Sydney Charles Perkins Centre mentions "current treatments for type 2 diabetes don't consider the individuals response to therapy or medication, so it is difficult to really know what treatment, diet or exercise regimen is best for the individual". 

    What are your thoughts on precision medicine?
