Eating less than 1,000 calories a day for up to five months can CURE Type 2 diabetes

Post by HoratioTarr on Wed Dec 06, 2017 12:10 am

[*]Eating between 825 and 850 calories a day for three to five months put the disease into remission in almost half of patients in a new study


[*]After one year, participants had lost an average of 10 kilos (22 lbs)


[*]Experts say bariatric surgery is effective but expensive, risky and unnecessary


[*]Guidelines focus on addressing symptoms with drugs instead of 'the root cause'


[*]Big challenge is weight re-gain and if remission is achievable in the long-term 


[*]The team therefore plan to do a follow-up study in four years' time  


[*]Worldwide diabetes figures are expected to climb to 642 million by 2040

We eat far more than we need to. It really does the body good to fast for a day here and there.

I dunno about the exact number of calories, but surely the issue is losing weight. This isn't new - some experts have been saying for years that losing weight can control or even cure Type 2 diabetes.

I have been type 2 for a few years now I didn't know but the symptoms were there i was losing loads of weight then putting it on and so on .

I felt really ill in March this year when my dad was seriously ill and was diagnosed the same day with blood test from meter reading 12.9 .

I started walking an hour each day and 3 months later my numbers had dropped to a normal level.

I follow a healthy diet and exercise lots - I lost a stone in weight and its stayed the same - I didn't think I was over weight but losing a stone has reversed type 2 .

Vod, It's totally fabulous that you managed your own illness without resorting to subscription meds. Good news if they can actually get most people to do this and it works for them.

Yes, well done Vod. Nobody seems to know the exact cause of Type 2, but there are many theories, and losing weight seems to be a good way to reverse it or control it. It's not clear if exercise in itself helps or if it just contributes to the weight loss. It's also not clear if the kind of thing people eat is a cause.

Eddie, the trouble is that many people would rather take a pill than lose weight and/or do more exercise.

I think borderline is bull shit to be honest - don't worry about it .

That's because many people just blindly and lazily do exactly what their doctors tell them without even considering a lifestyle change.

The doctor may well recommend that they change their lifestyle, but they just won't do it, so it's not the doctors' fault.

I guess they feel there's no point giving up now.

I was very surprised when my doctor phoned me with the result - he told me that with a change in diet and exercise diabetes will be cured and he told me look up a doctor who did just that on the internet - I forgot his name now .
I know that just hearing that word 'cure' gave me the motivation to get my life back in control .

One thing that did confuse was that my blood sugar went down to normal but my cholesterol has raised from 7 - 7.1 . I was offered statins but point blank refused them .

When i refused the statins there was no ' oh you must take them bla bla bla - he just said okay then no problem .
