Researchers Say Weigh Loss May Lead To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

It's always been believed that the condition is manageable, but not curable. Fat accumulated in the abdomen prevents the proper function of the pancreas which can lead to life-threatening complications like blindness and foot amputations, heart and kidney disease. The other half of patients, who served as a control group, received the best diabetes management available - but that did not include a weight loss program. In the trial, nine out of 10 people who lost 15 kilograms or more put their type 2 diabetes into remission.

'But our results should pave the way for this type of intervention to be considered in the routine care of patients with type 2 diabetes who wish to attain diabetes remission'.

The first-year results of a clinical trial have shown that nearly half of people partaking in an intensive weight management program delivered through primary care achieved remission of their type 2 diabetes without medication. Globally, the number of people with type 2 diabetes has quadrupled over 35 years. This builds on the work into the underlying cause of the condition, so that we can target management effectively. Interesting, indeed, as numerous current treatments for type 2 diabetes involve medication and even surgery to restrict stomach capacity. But it's important that anyone with Type 2 diabetes considering losing weight in this way seeks advice from a health professional'.

The patients will have to keep to their healthy habits to avoid reverting back to diabetes, the scientists warned. But dietary guidance has not traditionally been the focus of treatment for diabetes and similar conditions.

A new United Kingdom study claims that a severe diet plan can permanently cure type 2 diabetes, even in patients who have had it for years. "Diet and lifestyle are touched upon, but diabetes remission by cutting calories is rarely discussed", Taylor told The Guardian.

"Our findings suggest that even if you have had type 2 diabetes for 6 years, putting the disease into remission is feasible", co-author Michael Lean said in a statement. Those numbers are expected to reach 642 million by 2040. He said: "It is actually cheaper than some of the drugs prescribed for Type 2 diabetes".

These findings present a hopeful option not just for improved management of the condition, but a potential cure.

However, Professor Roy Taylor acknowledged that long-term avoidance of weight regain was a major challenge, and said the study would continue for a further four years to assess whether weight loss and diabetes remission were maintained. Patients who have been living with the disease for 10 years or more have also suffered a loss of some cells which make the weight loss method alone ineffective.
