Dr Sara Suliman is a consultant endocrinologist and diabetologist at the Imperial College Diabetes Center in Abu Dhabi. She studied at the world-renowned Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, earned her Phd at Oxford University, has authored several research papers and presented her research at major international conferences. She was a member of the team selected by the Emirates Diabetes and Endocrinology Society to update UAE guidelines for management of type-2 diabetes in 2020 and is also a joint UAE representative to the World Obesity Federation: Gulf & Lebanon Recommendations Experts Group, which is guiding new regional recommendations for the prevention, treatment and management of obesity.

• Why she went into medicine

• The patient who made her decide to be an endocrinologist

• The cause and effect of insulin resistance

• Why some slim people become insulin resistant and some overweight people do not

• Why you should treat Type-2 diabetes like a close friend – and how it’s possible to go into complete remission

• How research into epigenetics is changing the way we look at health and disease

• Changing views on weight loss

• The best diet options

• The reasons behind the prevalence of Polycsytic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and some of the treatment options
