Dr. Alexander Fleming on Searching for Solutions to Metabesity and Healthy Aging
Date:1/22/2013

San Francisco (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

With the global epidemic of obesity and diabetes, the importance of getting new solutions for prevention and treatment has never been greater. At the 2013 Biotech Showcase running in parallel with JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, noted endocrinologist and strategist Dr. Alexander Fleming was interviewed by Ellie Rubin following his participation in a panel discussion on the challenges for advancing treatments for obesity.

Dr. Fleming expresses long and broad views of metabolic disease in our society and the potential solutions for not just treating these diseases, but preventing them. Obesity and diabetes make up only the tip of the iceberg of root metabolic disorders, which contribute to the most common causes of mortality and morbidity today—cardiovascular disease and cancer. The aging process itself is accelerated by these metabolic disorders.

Metabesity is the term Dr. Fleming uses to describe the entire iceberg of interrelated conditions—diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, dyslipidemia, cancer promotion, and accelerated aging—which collectively represent enormous health and economic burdens. Evidence is emerging that many of these conditions can be attacked simultaneously with the same intervention. And, intervening early to maintain health and prevent disease is clearly where we should be focusing more of our efforts.

Dr. Fleming stresses that solutions to metabesity will come from many directions: nutrition, physical activity, electronic tools, dietary supplements, drugs, medical devices, and even surgery. Right now we have relatively strong evidence about how to treat diabetes with drugs, but weak evidence about how to prev
