Cure for Diabetes 2? You Decide.
I was doing research on a Program that says it is a CURE FOR DIABETES 2, and the study below was included in the information from the Program. Since I have lived with a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes for over 30 years, use no Oral Medications, No Insulin, just a diet and 30 minutes of exercise each day I wanted to know more about this study released by British Physicians in June, 2011.
I searched the American Diabetes Association website, they had a lot of studies listed, most were related to studies done by Drug Companies regarding their various drugs and their positive results in “treating” diabetes. But this study was not to be found, even searching for the correct title or just the words “cure for type 2 diabetes.
Above is a link for this study. It is available in PDF and can be read on the site or downloaded if you desire a copy. Might consider taking it to your caregiver and see if might be helpful.
I have provided a short summary of the beginning of the study and a summary of the end of the study. Read and Learn. Take a copy to your physician…he might have missed it!
Type 2 diabetes is regarded as inevitably progressive, with irreversible beta cell failure.
The hypothesis was tested that both beta cell failure and insulin resistance can be reversed by dietary restriction of energy intake.
Eleven people with type 2 diabetes (49.5 ± 2.5 years, BMI 33.6 ± 1.2 kg/m2, nine male and two female) were studied before and after 1, 4 and 8 weeks of a 2.5 MJ (600 kcal)/day diet.
Basal hepatic glucose output, hepatic and peripheral insulin sensitivity and beta cell function were measured.
Pancreas and liver triacylglycerol content was measured using three-point Dixon magnetic resonance imaging.
An age-, sex- and weight-matched group of eight non-diabetic participants was studied.
After 1 week of restricted energy intake, fasting plasma glucose normalised in the diabetic group (from 9.2 ± 0.4 to 5.9 ± 0.4 mmol/l; p = 0.003).
Insulin suppression of hepatic glucose output improved from 43 ± 4% to 74 ± 5% (p = 0.003 vs baseline; controls 68 ± 5%).
Hepatic triacylglycerol content fell from 12.8 ± 2.4% in the diabetic group to 2.9 ± 0.2% by week 8 (p = 0.003).
The first-phase insulin response increased during the study period (0.19 ± 0.02 to 0.46 ± 0.07 nmol min−1 m−2; p < 0.001) and approached control values (0.62 ± 0.15 nmol min−1 m−2; p = 0.42).
Maximal insulin response became supranormal at 8 weeks (1.37 ± 0.27 vs controls 1.15 ± 0.18 nmol min−1 m−2).
Pancreatic triacylglycerol decreased from 8.0 ± 1.6% to 6.2 ± 1.1% (p = 0.03).
Normalisation of both beta cell function and hepatic insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes was achieved by dietary energy restriction alone.
This was associated with decreased pancreatic and liver triacylglycerol stores.
The abnormalities underlying type 2 diabetes are reversible by reducing dietary energy intake.
For the eight week study – published in the June 24
issue of “Diabetologia”- researchers tracked the insulin
levels of the diabetics as they ate an extreme
600-calorie-a-day diet consisting solely of diet shakes
and non-starchy vegetables. After one week on the diet,
the diabetics’ blood sugar levels were no longer
elevated. After eight weeks on the diet, their bodies’
regained the ability to make insulin, essentially curing
them of diabetes.
Here is a link to a diet I found that started me on the road to finding and reading the above research.
