Episode 471: PREMIUM – Vitamin C, iron and diabetes – new evidence and good answers

In episode 471, Mike and James get back to being PREMIUM and discuss 2 studies that should impact what you do today in your practice. Is Vitamin C needed when you take iron? What does the evidence really show about the SGLT-2 and the GLP-1s for diabetes and is one better than the other?
