Professor Rury Holman gave the opening keynote speech at the 4th annual Asian-Pacific Bayer Chinese Diabetes (ABCD) meeting in Chengdu, China on Saturday 12th May.

Prof Ji Linong, President of the Chinese Diabetes Society, introduced Prof Holman's talk describing "Early Intervention Strategies for Type 2 Diabetes".

Prof Holman told over 600 top endocrinologists from mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong that "waiting many years after the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes before introducing strict blood glucose control would never recapture the full benefits of early intervention".
