REPORT

A breakthrough treatment for Type 2 diabetes is now available

to self-paying patients at The Princess Grace Hospital, London.

New treatment for T2

R

evita is a minimally

invasive procedure

performed

endoscopically to

target the duodenum,

a precise area of the intestine that plays

a critical role in metabolic pathways,

including insulin resistance. It is a non-drug

and non-surgical alternative shown to enhance insulin

sensitivity, lower HbA1c and

create long-lasting improvements in blood

sugar control. Alongside a healthy diet

and exercise, one Revita treatment can

last up to 24 months or more and is ideal

for anyone with a busy lifestyle, where

taking daily medications can be a burden.

The Princess Grace Hospital in

London is the first medical facility to offer

Revita, a treatment that involves duodenal

mucosal resurfacing (DMR). It is provided

as part of a programme of care including

consultations and post-procedure

support, helping peo-ple to adjust to a

healthier lifestyle post-procedure, with

specialist follow-up appoint-ments for

diabetes and dietary advice, as needed.

It follows a series of global clinical trials

on the procedure, involving close to 300

participants, and including four NHS

hospitals. Research shows improved

overall insulin sensitivity, lowered HbA1c

(by nearly 1%), moderate weight loss,

improved liver health - more than 35%

reduction in liver fat and increased 'good'

(HDL) cholesterol.

Dr David Hopkins, Consultant

Physician and Diabetologist at King's

College Hospital and lead investigator in

the Revita-2 clinical trial, explains, "Revita

is a pioneering treatment which could

radically change the course of Type 2

diabetes. By targeting insulin resistance

in the duodenum - the root cause of

metabolic disease - the Revita procedure

has considerable benefits and may help

the person to avoid escalating drug

treatment."

Russell Pearson from Essex, pictured

above before and after his Revita

treatment, was one of the early clinical

trial patients in the UK, having undergone

the procedure in London three years ago.

He says, "Before my Revita procedure,

I was taking two diabetes tablets and

my GP was concerned I might have to

take insulin in the future. After Revita, my

blood sugar improved for the first time in

years, and I have also reduced my daily

medication. My recent blood test shows

my levels are now better than the prediabetic range."

Given time and further proof of

efficacy, it is hoped that this treatment

may become available on the NHS for

people that qualify.
