But many questions remain about the disease, and researchers around the world are focusing on several different theories. In this section of the podcast Akademiliv, we get an insight into how research on this very common disease is done.
The guest is Emanuel Fryk, a doctoral student at the University of Gothenburg, who recently completed his dissertation on type 2 diabetes, and specifically on the protein galectin-1 in type 2 diabetes. He also works as a doctor at a health center, where he meets many patients with the disease. He is hopeful for the future, and believes in a flattening of obesity and diabetes in the future, as society to a greater extent highlights the importance of lifestyle.
