Diabetes Type 2 Curable

According to a new study, most people with diabetes type 2 can be cured simply by losing weight.

Moville’s population is around 1,500.

As around one in ten adults has diabetes, and even more in older adults, there is likely to be around 150 people in Moville with type 2 diabetes.

A study by Glasgow university put 300 people in the test with half continuing to get medication from theri doctor an the other half put on strict diets.

Into Remission

One women who lost 48 pounds and went into remision said “I was put on various meciations previously.

“They were constantly increasing and I was becoming more and more ill every day.”

However, she went on the low calorie diet and she no longer needs pills for diabetes.

She said: “When the doctors told me that my pancreas was working again, it felt fantastic – absolutely amazing.

“I don’t think of myself as a diabetic any more.”

Lose Weight and Cure Diabetes

The study found that half of those using the low calorie diet went into remission after 12 months.

The exact figure is 46%.

However, 86% of those who lose 33lbs or more went into remission after 12 months.

That means that you have six chances in seven of being cured if you lose that amount of weight.

However, they do stress that anyone thinking of embarking on weight loss to cure diabetes type 2 should seek the help and advice of their doctors.

The results will be published in The Lancet Journal.
