Dr Jeremy Krebs is an Endocrinologist and Clinical Leader of Endocrinology and Diabetes at Capital and Coast District Health Board, where he heads the research group. He is also a Professor at the University of Otago, Wellington, and part of the Edgar Diabetes and Obesity Research Centre.
His MD thesis examined the association between obesity and insulin resistance, immersing him in both large intervention studies and small detailed physiological studies, using multiple techniques to measure body composition, insulin sensitivity, and other physiological parameters.
Jeremy continues to develop research projects in both areas, with a particular focus on the association between obesity and type 2 diabetes, both from an aetiology and management perspective.
