This HealthNewsReview podcast features an important topic: Is there overdiagnosis of diabetes? Is the creation of the term and the diagnosis of “pre-diabetes” another form of over diagnosis?
The topic was addressed 4 years ago in an article called “The Idolatry of the Surrogate” in The BMJ. This week, another paper was published by a group of authors (including some TI members) in the October issue of the British Journal of General Practice: “Ten Commandments for patient-centred treatment“. One of the authors, Dr. John S. Yudkin is the special guest on this new podcast. He’s an emeritus professor of medicine at University College in London.
