Diet changes and weight loss have been shown to effectively lead to reversal – or remission – of Type 2 diabetes in 40% to over 50% of a study group.
- 46% of Type 2 diabetics who managed their condition through weight loss achieved remission within 12 months, according to a 2014-2017 randomized study conducted on primary care patients in Scotland and England.
- 40% Type 2 diabetics – who adopted a low-calorie diet over a two month period, lost weight and then maintained their weight loss for six months – achieved remission
The results are clear: changing food habits and achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can lead to sustainable, non-diabetic glucose levels.
Potentially half of all Type 2 diabetics today could achieve reversal – or remission – whichever term you prefer.
