The majority of studies show that Diabetes is an incurable disease and cannot be cured and reduced without treatment.
However, some researches show opposite results.
According to the research of Professor Roy Taylor of Newcastle University; Science daily:
People who succeeded in reducing weight while fighting type 2 diabetes were able to reverse diabetes.
Moreover, the team researchers also found that people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes were able to successfully reverse diabetes for more than 10 years just by reducing weight.
Dr. David Unwin, a UK GP, conducted research among his patients and concluded that most of his patients were able to reverse diabetes by sticking to a minimum amount of carbohydrates in their diet.
Hence, it is proved that diabetes can be reversed for a certain period but only in some lucky cases. It doesn’t mean that the patient is completely free from this disease. However, some positive changes may occur in the affected person’s body and he/she can live a healthy life while following the different ways of reversing diabetes in a healthy manner.
Before learning how to reverse it, let us take a look at what diabetes actually is.
Diabetes is caused by either low insulin levels or by defective insulin action and high glucose levels in the blood. In simple words, the majority of food stored in our body is converted into glucose. High glucose level causes the pancreas to release a chemical named insulin. Insulin is responsible for the transfer of sugar in the blood cells which afterward, transform into energy. Diabetes is caused when enough amount of insulin is not released by the pancreas, or maybe when the body is not allowing insulin to perform its function properly. Because of this, the sugar level of blood raises to the maximum causing this disease.
Diabetes is of three types:
1. Type 1 Diabetes
This type is due to immune dysregulation whereby the body’s immune system destroys the pancreatic beta cells that produce insulin. Hence, the cause of this type is not in your hands, and its prevention is as well. No cure for this type is invented or discovered to date. The only treatment of this disease is the regular dose of insulin every single day.
2. Type 2 Diabetes
The majority of the patients having diabetes are diagnosed with this type. In this type, the insulin stops performing its function that is, breaking down of food. It is more common in middle age and older adults. It is caused by obesity, being overweight, physical inactivity, etc.
Luckily, it can be reversed and controlled for a certain period.
3. Gestational Diabetes
This type is caused during pregnancy. It can be cured completely after giving birth to the baby, but it may leave some after-effects on your health or the baby’s health.
