In this episode of The Muscle Memoirs Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Roy Taylor to discuss his research on type 2 diabetes remission, including the etiology of the disease, the personal fat threshold, and very-low-calorie diets.
Dr. Taylor is a professor of Medicine and Metabolism at Newcastle University and Honorary Consultant Physician at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He was visiting professor of medicine at Yale University (1990-91) where he acquired new MRI methods to look into the human body. On returning to the UK, he established the Newcastle MR Centre. He also developed the UK system for screening of diabetic eye disease and is the author of over 300 scientific papers.
