Is it possible to reverse Diabetes?
Just for the uninitiated, it is impossible to reverse type 1 diabetes and there is no cure for type 2 diabetes either, but there is evidence to suggest it may be possible for some people to reverse it.
It isn’t officially called diabetes reversal, because this might sound like it’s permanent and there is no guarantee that your diabetes has gone forever. So, it is referred to as type 2 diabetes remission. That usually happens when your blood sugar levels are well below the diabetes range and in-check, owing to which you don’t need diabetes medication anymore.
The most concrete evidence that suggests that type 2 diabetes is put into remission is weight loss. Remission is more likely if you lose weight as early as possible after getting diagnosed with diabetes. However, there are people who have put their diabetes into remission 25 years after diagnosis.
Diabetes goes into remission, if you happen to have obesity and lose a substantial amount of weight (15 kgs) as quickly and safely post diagnosis. Scientists believe excessive fat in liver and pancreas affects how it evolves and losing this fat can help you put your diabetes into remission. People have effectively lost weight and got their diabetes into remission through lifestyle and diet changes or by having weight loss surgery called bariatric surgery.
It is essential to note that there is no such thing as one special diet for people with diabetes or those aiming for diabetes reversal. Each person has unique requirements and body. One could lose weight through a lot of ways, but there is no one-size-fits-all diet. But, reports suggest Mediterranean diet or low-carb diet helps losing weight in an effective way.
