Fasting Cures Type 2 Diabetes – T2d 4

While many consider Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) irreversible, fasting has also been long known to cure diabetes. In our previous post, we considered bariatric surgery. While extreme, these surgeries have proven the point that the metabolic abnormalities that underlie T2D (hyper insulinemia, insulin resistance) can often be fully reversed after a short (weeks) period of intensive treatment with bariatrics. Many early studies were done with the heavy-duty Roux-en-Y surgery, which is the heavyweight champions of surgeries. The best weight loss. The most complications. This is the surgery that has ‘Go Big or Go Home’ tattooed on its massive bicep. But even milder forms of bariatric surgery show the same reversibility of T2D. A gastric band is essentially a belt implanted around your stomach. They keep tightening the belt so that you can’t eat. If you try to eat too much, you’ll puke it all back up. Loverly. It ain’t pretty, but it sure do work. Again, long term results are kind of iffy, but short term results are pretty good. You can see the results of gastric banding versus medical treatment from the graph above. Patients randomized to the gastric band showed a significant and pre Continue reading >>

    Regards,
    Sk ranjana Type 1 diabetes is, currently, incurable. Type 2 diabetes, in a lot of cases, can be reversed. Is reversal a cure? That is the debate. Does a cure need to be a magic tablet, or can it be an implemented change that's kept up 24/7?
    Unfortunately, not all type 2 diabetics can reverse their condition. Like type 1 diabetics, some have very little or no control over their outcome.
    Persistent diet, exercise and lifestyle changes can lower A1c's to a level deemed "non-diabetic". It must be noted that the lifestyle changes need to be maintained, otherwise the diabetes simply returns.
    So in short, type 2 diabetes can sometimes be reversed. But in my opinion, it can only be cured providing that the "cure" is a change that you implement and keep up for the rest of your life. Whether that is cure, or just permanent reversal is six and half a dozen... In my opinion though, a cure would mean that you could live your life normally without making adjustments to your lifestyle. Eat what and when you want and have a non-diabetic HbA1c, all without diet, exercise and carbohydrate intake limitations.
    You should go and see your Dr for more conclusive tests as to whether you need medication or not in this instance. I wish you well.
    Cheers,
    Grant

    Can diabetes Cure permanently???? If you can eat about 250 gms of carbohydrate per day (that's approximately equal to 750 calories worth or 1/3 of your daily diet, depending on what source of information you use), without your BG going through the roof then I would suggest you were no longer diabetic. However, if you are cutting carbs to achieve sensible BG then it's not exactly cured. Only my opinion.
