Diabetes: A Rising Tide 54:27
Diabetes is an increasingly common disease causing raised blood sugar with serious long-term consequences. Type 1 diabetes was almost always fatal until the discovery of insulin, and causes serious medical consequences. Type 2 diabetes, where the body does not fully respond to insulin is often associated with obesity. This lecture will consider the treatment, prevention and recent advances in the science of diabetes.
Asthma and Chronic Airways Disease 52:37
Asthma, an intermittent disease, is the commonest lung disease in the UK. The second is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), now the 4th leading cause of death globally. In both a combination of environmental and genetic factors are important, although for COPD smoking is the biggest risk factor.
This lecture will consider trends and advances in these two diseases, and the chronic genetic lung disease cystic fibrosis.
