Type 2 Diabetes is a condition of high blood sugar levels due to impaired functioning of insulin. Various factors such as obesity, high blood pressure, high lipid levels, excess glucose secretion from the liver and some genetic components may cause Type 2 Diabetes. .A research trial called Diabetes Remission Clinical Trial (DiRECT) has shown that people with a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes of 10 years or less and no other comorbidities could achieve Diabetes reversal by following a low-calorie diet. A low-calorie diet, along with exercise, promotes weight loss; thereby improving insulin sensitivity in the body. A recent research study published in the journal Diabetic Medicine has found that of all the other factors, weight loss was the strongest predictor of Diabetes reversal, i.e HbAlc (a three-month average of blood sugar levels) less than 6.0 per cent. The study has found that with each kilogram of weight loss, the chances of Diabetes reversal was increased by 24 per cent. People who had weight loss in the first four weeks of the diet program and who had been consistent in their diet had a high chance of achieving weight loss. Consult your dietician to better understand the right diet for you.
