In Part 2 of this Exclusive Interview, Dr. Tim Garvey talks with Diabetes in Control Publisher Steve Freed at the 2016 AACE Meeting in Boston about the two-fold diagnostic criteria for obesity.
Dr. Tim Garvey, MD, FACE is the professor and chair of the Department of Nutrition Sciences at the University of Alabama. Dr. Garvey has achieved international recognition for his research in the metabolic, molecular, and genetic pathogenesis of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. His studies have involved the cellular and molecular biology of cell and animal models, metabolic investigations of human subjects on metabolic research wards, and the genetic basis of diseases in Gullah-speaking African Americans, Pima Indians, and national cohorts of diabetes patients. By studying molecular parameters and differential gene expression in muscle and fat tissue from metabolically characterized individuals, the Garvey laboratory has made important observations regarding the pathogenesis of human insulin resistance.
