TitleModels of diabetogenesis                                                       

AbstractI will discuss the classical model of the development of diabetes in the context of an alternative model that has recently gained attention. The alternative model - dubbed the hypersecretion theory of diabetes - claims that over-secretion of insulin by beta-cells, not under-secretion, is the essential causal event leading to diabetogenesis. I will describe a new mathematical model that places this model on firmer theoretical ground.
