I think that's probably one of the most common myths we hear in diabetes that, oh my God I've got it and it's never going to go away and that's actually not true. We have seen that if you can get your body weight down, that you can reverse the disease, we never said goes away completely, you might say it's diet control, weight control but you can't absolutely reverse it with the right measures.

You'd be eating less, you'll be walking more and overall maintain your ideal body weight. And if you need it, obviously, we have medications that control blood sugar. So we would like to start with what we call lifestyle measures, if you can control it with that, that's excellent, but if not it's much worse to have high blood sugars than to take a medications that can help lower blood sugars in the blood sugar system control.
