NZSSD Expert Opinions on published studies

From time to time the NZSSD Executive invites a member of NZSSD to provide an Expert Opinion on a relevant topical issue. These are intended to stimulate thought and debate within the Society on different aspects of diabetes research and management. Expert opinions are commentaries reflecting the views of the author, and are not formal statements of the Society itself. NZSSD Position Statements can be found elsewhere on this website.
