ABCD is delighted to announce the release of  “Consensus position statement for Remission of Type 2 diabetes, prepared jointly with Primary Care Diabetes Society” 

We understand the importance of this consensus definition and have asked other organisations to work with us to achieve an international consensus on defining remission of type 2 diabetes. 

New evidence is emerging that not only it is possible to achieve remission of type 2 diabetes but it can be sustained for a longer period of time. This has significant implication for health care but more importantly for people who have type 2 diabetes.  ABCD and PCDS strongly believe that on going support and regular review of those who successfully achieve remission is vital. 

My sincere thanks  to all those who contributed  to this important work.
