Will Insulin Treatment Disappear in Type 2 Diabetes?
Whether "insulin-free type 2 diabetes" is either "coming" or "nonsense" was the topic of a debate at the recent European Association for the Study of Diabetes 2022 Annual Meeting. Bruce H.R. Wolffenbuttel, MD, PhD, argued the "nonsense" view, given the heterogeneity and progressive nature of type 2 diabetes, while Apostolos Tsapas, MD, PhD, expressed confidence that newer approaches will eventually render insulin treatment unnecessary for people with type 2 diabetes.
@debtanu Among those with obesity there is a subgroup who are insulin deficient at onset and need insulin replacement rather soon. So, it's a false conclusion to say that everyone with type 2 diabetes who is obese is insulin sufficient
