The vast majority of diabetes cases are Type 2 strongly linked to lifestyle such as poor diet excess weight and inactivity and genetics

The 149 participants in the weight programme would eat soups or health shakes to limit their calorie intake to 825-853 per day for three to five months.
The trial, done at the Magnetic Resonance Center at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom, looked at 306 participants recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the last six years. Half of the patients were put on a low-calorie diet and lost an average of 10 to 15 kg (22 to 33 pounds).
The first-year results of a clinical trial have shown that nearly half of people partaking in an intensive weight management program delivered through primary care achieved remission of their type 2 diabetes without medication.
However, the results of new research, including the Diabetes Remission Clinical Trial (DiRECT) - expected to be published over the next few months - could provide an answer to the question of whether dietary reversals of type 2 diabetes, using an initial formula-based low energy diet followed by permanent lifestyle change, are sustainable for two years within primary care environments, said Brown. "Diet and lifestyle are touched upon but diabetes remission by cutting calories is rarely discussed", said co-researcher Professor Roy Taylor from Newcastle University.
He said: "Rather than addressing the root cause, management guidelines for Type 2 diabetes focus on reducing blood sugar levels through drug treatments". Eighty-six per cent of patients who lost 15kg (33lbs) or more went into remission. Forty-six percent of participants in the test group reversed their diabetes and went into remission, while only 4% of the control group saw their diabetes go away. This builds on the work into the underlying cause of the condition, so that we can target management effectively.
Prof. Taylor says that significant weight loss reduces the amount of fat in the liver and pancreas so that they can start working normally again.
Worldwide, the number of people with Type 2 diabetes has quadrupled over 35 years, largely due to the growth in obesity.
The patients will have to keep to their healthy habits to avoid reverting back to diabetes, the scientists warned. "In contrast to other approaches, we focus on the need for long-term maintenance of weight loss through diet and exercise and encourage flexibility to optimise individual results".
These findings present a hopeful option not just for improved management of the condition, but a potential cure. Patients who have been living with the disease for 10 years or more have also suffered a loss of some cells which make the weight loss method alone ineffective.
