8 Weeks On A Strict Diet May Get Rid Of Diabetes

When you are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (also known as adult-onset diabetes), you’re advised to accept it as a lifelong disease that may require oral medications and—for 50% of people with type 2 diabetes—insulin within 10 years. But what if that wasn’t the case? What if you could follow a strict low calorie diet for 2 months and get rid of your diabetes forever? Well, for some of you, it’s possible. Here’s what you need to know. What changed? From looking at people who have had bariatric (weight loss) surgery, it’s been found that a return to normal glucose control is possible after weight loss in some people with type 2 diabetes. After bariatric surgery, remission of diabetes occurs in 80% of people. So, what about after any sharp decrease in calorie intake? There’s a new study from the journal Diabetes Care that looks at just that question. What did the people in this study do? This study was comprised of three phases: a very low calorie diet (VLCD) for 8 weeks; a stepped return to intake of normal food over 2 weeks; and a weight maintenance program over 6 months.

    Welcome to DD.
    Has your doctor prescribed any medicine or insulin for you? 7 is a very definitely diabetic HbA1c number and would usually result in medication and/or insulin and a prescription for a meter and strips for testing.
    Even one bagel would put my blood glucose up high because of the carbs in it.

    Even one bagel would put my blood glucose up high because of the carbs in it. He wanted me to take a shot that starts with a V. ( Its not insulin ) but i told them that i don't want to stick myself with a needle then they said go see a dietian if you can't do the shots. I think i can monitor the meals on my own as i change my diet before to more healthly food i eat blackbean burgers instead of beef burgers and i am trying to switch my bread to healther bread but it looks like bread is out now. So i told them i can do it on my own.
