Experts gather to discuss reducing risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in webinar hosted by TDMR Europe

Posted On: 24th July 2020

Total Diet & Meal Replacements Europe (TDMR Europe) yesterday (23 July 2020) delivered a webinar, ‘Reducing future risk: Obesity co-morbidities and nutritional status’, attracting over 100 academics, policymakers and medical specialists from all over the world.

The webinar, which had been awarded SCOPE World Obesity Federation accreditation, highlighted the use of total diet replacements to reduce future risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease and diminish severe outcomes in COVID-19 among at-risk subgroups within populations. The expert panel of speakers included Professors Carel le Roux, Mike Lean, Henning Bliddal and Shahrad Taheri, as well as webinar host, TDMR Europe Chair Professor Anthony Leeds.

The speakers discussed a range of diverse and challenging topics, including obesity, nutritional status and COVID-19, TDR to achieve diabetes remission and diabetes risk reduction, TDR and vitamin D status in elderly obese people with knee osteoarthritis, and research needs and translation into practice in the context of diabetes remission.

A video of the webinar will be available to view shortly. To view the abstracts, click here.
