QUESTION 0- CAN DIABETES BE REVERSED?
Although there is no cure for type 2 diabetes, but studies show it’s possible for some people to reverse it Type 2 diabetes is an ongoing disease.
Through diet changes and weight loss, you may be able to reach and hold normal blood sugar levels without medication if you are not taking medication and your blood sugar level stay in a healthy range, there is always a chance that symptoms will return.
Several studies in England have looked at the effects of a very low calories diet on diabetes. if follow a mostly liquid diet of 625-850 calories a day for 2-6 months, followed by a less restricted diet designed to help them keep off the weight they lost. The studies found that nearly half the people who took part reversed their diabetes.
Most of the people who reversed their type 2 diabetes lost 30 pounds or more. It means working with a professional and being very controlled with how may calories you eat, and may give you strong motivation to stick to it.So it’s important to get started on a weight loss plan as soon as possible after you are diagnosed.
When you have type 2 diabetes Research shows that certain cells may come back. People who lost weight had lower levels of fat in their liver and pancreas and for some of them, that helped the beta cells in their pancreas that release insulin and control blood sugar start working again.
That suggests it may be better for doctor to help people lose a lot of weight after a diagnosis, rather than make small lifestyle changes and manage symptoms with medications.
The progression of prediabetes to over type 2 diabetes can be slowed or reversed by life style changes or medications to improve insulin sensitivity or reduce the liver’s glucose production.
More physical activity is a way to improve diabetes.
A study that had people air for 8000-10000 steps a day 21/2 hours of moderate exercise a week along with cutting 500-700 calories a day and following insulin and medication routine, we saw more than half of them reach near normal blood sugar without medication.
Researchers see people have diabetes and after Bariatric surgery,Gastric bypass and gastric sleeve ( also called sleeve gastrectomy)surgery have better long term results than gastric banding.

Bariatric surgery is generally an option only when your BMI ( is 35 or higher ).It works best for people who have had the disease for 5 years.(BMI)- Body mass index is a measures of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women.
Fasting can be a practical way to lose weight because it’s fairly straight forward, but it’s not a mainstream treatment for type 2 diabetes. If you want to try fasting, you should work with your doctor so you get the right information and support to do it safely.
The foods you eat should have a low glycemic, foods in higher in fiber, protein or fats like vegetables and good quality protein such as fish,chicken, bens, othertypes of nutritions foods like fruits, whole grains, low fat dairy products and nuts.
And also exercise is very important . Exercise makes cells more insulin sensitive, pulling glucose out of the blood. This brings down blood sugar, and more importantly gives you better energy because the glucose is being transferred to the cells. The benefits of exercise on blood sugar last about 48-72 hours. So it is important for you to be physically active almost every day.
