After breaking his leg, undergraduate student Luke Durward used his time to return home and mentor his little brother on healthy eating. While illustrating his brother’s dramatic transformation, Durward shares the obvious secret that is repeatedly overlooked by unsuccessful dieters.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Type 2 Diabetes – What Is The Relationship Between HbA1c, Retinopathy and Diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes is a public health problem, the numbers of which are expected to continue increasing. Public health services need to know more about what services will be necessary as the epidemic progresses. Investigators at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, Australia, have developed a way to calculate the rate of development of diabetic retinopathy per year, and to learn how the HbA1c levels were controlled since the disease was first diagnosed. By dividing the amount of retinopathy development by the number of years since Type 2 diabetes was diagnosed, scientists were able to calculate the degree of damage per year. Turning things around the scientists were able to find the level of HbA1c level control throughout the history of all the Type 2 diabetic participants.
Type 2 Diabetes – Are You Asking Yourself the Right Questions Where Your Health Is Concerned?
