Diet Reverses Type 2 Diabetes

A team of researchers at a university in the U.K. (Newcastle University) has discovered that Type 2 diabetes can be reversed soley by a low calorie diet. Type 2 diabetes is a long-term condition caused by too much glucose in the blood stream.

In an early stage clinical trial of 11 people, all 11 individuals reversed their diabetes by drastically cutting their food intake to just 600 calories a day for two months. Three months later, seven of the 11 remained free of diabetes.

“To have people free of diabetes after years with the condition is remarkable - and all because of an eight week diet," said Professor Roy Taylor who led the study. “This is a radical change in understanding Type 2 diabetes. It will change how we can explain it to people newly diagnosed with the condition. While it has long been believed that someone with Type 2 diabetes will always have the disease, and that it will steadily get worse, we have shown that we can reverse the condition.”

Research along with the study demonstrates that people who go on a very low calorie diet can remove fat which is clogging up the pancreas allowing normal insulin secretion to be restored.
