Organisation profile

Aims and objectives

Remission of diabetes and appetite regulation after bariatric surgery. Importance of gut hormone.  

Life Style: Importance of weight loss, exercise and GLP-1 receptor agonist treatment for metabolic health

Treatment of hypoglycaemia with "small-doses" of glucagon in patients with type 1 diabetes

Research in bone and calcium metabolic diseases.


Focus areas

Bariatric surgery:

1) intestinal sensing of macro nutrients with focus on the L-cell (GLP-1, PYY secretion)l,
2) mechanism of actions of gastric bypass vs. gastric sleeve surgery,
3) comparison between poor and good responders to gastric bypass surgery.

Life style: effect of weight loss, exercise alone and in combination compared with treatment with a GLP-1 receptor agonist on glucose and lipid metabolism, low grade inflammation etc.

Treatment of hypoglycaemia: the recovery of hypoglycaemia when using small doses of glucagon after a period of low-carb intake or alcohol intake in insulin pump treated type 1 diabetic patients 

Bone and calcium metabolic disease: research in osteoporosis, vitamin D and seldom calcium metabolic diseases. Fracture liaison service.




Disciplines, methods and tools

In relation to bariatirc surgery and hypoglycaemia: clinical intervention studies and experimental research in humans using physiological, biochemical, genetic and molecular methods.

Life style on metabolic health: randomised clinical trial design combined with  physiolological, biochemical, genetic and molecular methods

Bone and calcium metabolic disease: DXA-measurement, biochemical bone markers and DNA tests.
