Type 2 diabetes is a complex systems disease, caused by interactions between lifestyle and genes. It is an illusion to believe that it can be cured by medication. Lifestyle change should always be at the heart of treatment. Hanno Pijl is an internist-endocrinologist and professor of Diabetology at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) In Leiden, The Netherlands. He co-authored over 250 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals, primarily related to obesity and type 2 diabetes. He has been a member of the Dutch Health Council (standing committee on nutrition) from 2008-2016. He currently co-chairs the Dutch Innovation center for Lifestyle Medicine (www.nilg.eu), a joint effort of LUMC and the Dutch Organisation of Applied Science (TNO) focusing on lifestyle interventions in health care. Esther van Zuuren is a dermatologist at the Leiden University Medical Centre, but apart from that and more relevant for now is that her expertise lies in Evidence Based Medicine. She has been with Cochrane for almost 20 years, has held the position of Key Editor and Methods editor for Cochrane Skin group for several years and conducted over 30 systematic reviews on a wide variety of topics. Furthermore, she is member of the GRADE working group, is a Recommendations Editor for DynaMed Plus (clinical evidence-based reference tool for clinicians) and Associate Editor for Systematic Reviews for the British Journal of Dermatology. In our 20 min conversation we discuss Dietary advice for people with type 2 diabetes The importance of other lifestyle measures Effects of lifestyle intervention in clinical practice
Do I really need this test, treatment or procedure? What are the downsides? What happens if I do nothing? And are there simpler, safer alternatives? Dr. Ray Moynihan (@raymoynihan) joins BJSM’s Daniel Friedman (@ddfriedman) to discuss the growing problem of overdiagnosis and overtreatment, and what is being done to wind back the harms of too much medicine. Ray is an Australian academic, author and award-winning health journalist who completed his PhD on overdiagnosis in 2015 at the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice at Bond University in Australia, where he is also a senior research fellow.

Contrary to the long held contention that low fat diets are best for people with type 2 diabetes (DM2), the totality of current evidence suggests that low carb diets are at least as effective in ameliorating metabolic health in DM2. In fact, low carb seems to be somewhat better, particularly in the short to medium term, although the evidence is of moderate certainty. On this week’s episode Prof Hanno Pijl (@HannoPijl) and dr Esther van Zuuren (@Ezzoef) join Dr Aseem Malhotra (@DrAseemMalhotra) to discuss the most appropriate diet for people with DM2 Hanno Pijl is an internist-endocrinologist and professor of Diabetology at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) In Leiden, The Netherlands.

Did you know that the worldwide prevalence of obesity nearly tripled between 1975 and 2016? In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults and more than 340 million children were classified as overweight or obese. At the individual level and in our modern, obesogenic world, weight gain has become the norm—the biological and social path of least resistance. On this week’s podcast, Dr Sandro Demaio (@SandroDemaio) joins BJSM’s Daniel Friedman (@ddfriedman) to discuss childhood obesity and public health nutrition policy. After recently leaving his role as the WHO’s medical officer for NCDs and Nutrition, Sandro was appointed the CEO of EAT , a non-profit startup focused on food and sustainability.

The truth behind sports drinks. Episode #34524 Aug 2018
Did you know that a regular bottle of Gatorade contains 34g of sugar? That’s over 8 teaspoons of sugar! The WHO recommends that <10% of our daily energy should come from free sugars. For an adult consuming 2000 calories daily, this equates to a recommended limit of roughly 50 grams, or 12 teaspoons. On this week’s episode, Dr. Deborah Cohen (@deb_cohen) joins BJSM’s Daniel Friedman(@ddfriedman) to reveal the shocking truth behind sports drinks and the industry’s ties to sporting organisations, academia and schools. Deborah is an award winning television, print and radio reporter and academic journal editor. After training as a doctor in the UK and France, she became an editor of The BMJ working on both academics and journalistic sections. Deborah became the first investigations editor of The BMJ and has reported and co-produced documentaries for BBC Panorama and Newsnight, Channel 4 News and Dispatches, The Telegraph, as well has having worked with the Cochrane Collaboration.

Thanks to Professor Lorimer Moseley for his 4th BJSM podcast over the last 4 years. Here he chats with final year medical student Daniel Friedman who is at the coalface (@DDFriedman). How are the terms pain, nociception and central sensitisation used? Are they taught accurately or poorly? All of us can learn from Lorimer as he clarifies these concepts. Professor Lorimer Moseley (PT, PhD) is Chair of Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia and a professor of Clinical Neurosciences. people.unisa.edu.au/lorimer.moseley He combines Oxford rigour with a laconic and very popular Australian style of communication. You can find his patient-focused website ‘Tame the Beast’ here: www.tamethebeast.org/#home You can find his academic/health professional website ‘Body in Mind’ here: www.bodyinmind.org/ Lorimer’s 2014 BJSM podcast was on tendons.

BJSM is one of very few channels that comments on food but doesn’t receive any funds from any food-related stakeholder. The BMJ doesn’t receive funds from food companies (as far as I know) and the new BMJ Open journal on nutrition doesn’t either. What about the ‘British Nutrition Foundation’ – sounds pretty helpful right? Well, it may be, but if you know where to click 5 times you can find that about 1/3 of its funding from corporate sponsors. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has food sponsors too. That’s perfectly legal. What about Government Food Guidelines – surely they are based on health evidence? Well, they may be, but governments run the food guidelines past their Departments of Agriculture before finalizing them. And that is OK too – I can understand why that would happen – of course that Department has to have input. Government requires balancing competing interests. I don’t recommend people following national food guidelines (personal opinion – k2). I wouldn’t follow most nations’ food guidelines if I were given the food for free and paid $100 per day. Not for $500 per day – sorry. I’m fortunate as I’m on stable financial footing (touch wood). And what I eat may be ‘wrong’. This podcast is shared with the BJSM community in a spirit of humility and to provide data for folks to make up their own minds. Nina Teicholz is a journalist (let’s get than in early to save the critics from bringing it up – pre-empting the ad hominem attack) and she has a fascinating book that argues fats have been unfairly demonized. Since that book was published the news that Harvard scientists were paid for a report suggesting that fats, not sugar, caused obesity. http://ow.ly/j1Bc30kCvqx. Nina Teicholz tweets from @bigfatsurprise. Thanks to Dr Mark Hyman (@MarkHymanMD) for allowing us to edit his conversation with Nina Teicholz.

Have you ever felt frustrated that research doesn’t get into the public domain? It’s stuck in journals, on shelves. But Lorimer is tackling that head on with community based engagement in his characteristic quirky way. Listen to the story of the ‘Pain Revolution’ – a movement that engages local communities by having trained pain educators share contemporary pain science in accessible ways. Ignore the massive bike ride that Lorimer and friends undertake to spread the message and raise the funds (for now!). Listen to the story that underpins ‘Tame the Beast’ and watch it. Share it widely. Part 2 next week!
