Podcast: Episode 8 - Diabetes in the Faroe Islands

1. May 2023


Ten years ago, it was investigated how widespread type 2 diabetes was in the Faroe Islands. The results of the study have since been used for information and training of doctors – just as new diabetes research in the Faroe Islands stands on the shoulders of the project from 2013. Learn more about what was actually discovered back then – and how to find out how many people either have type 2 diabetes or have precursors to the disease. You can hear Jens Andreassen, chief physician at the medical department and responsible for the diabetes outpatient clinic at Steno Diabetes Center Faroe Islands, talk more about this in this episode.

Diabetes researchers are published in a collaboration between the seven Steno Diabetes Centers. All podcasts are in Danish.
