A pharmacist's perspective on health and metabolic disease
I received some exciting news this morning when I found out that a paper from my thesis that I co-authored with Dr J.R. Kraft* has been accepted for publication by the journal Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice.
This paper examined the data collected from Dr Kraft’s extensive database and is the first time that hyperinsulinaemia patterns have been examined with respect to BMI but also just in a cohort of people with normal glucose tolerance.
The value of Dr Kraft’s database is in the process of being recognised. While we have to admit that using data that is 40 years old may not be relevant to the more modern society, hopefully it will pave the way for more research funding.
Hopefully we can get the paper into print soon…..
(Maybe someday, the *Wow* factor of having a paper accepted will wear off, but this paper was extra exciting as it has been in the review process for about a year and now that it is accepted, I can get the next paper into its publication journey.)
