Can Type 2 Diabetes Be Reversed?
Sunday Apr 18th, 2021
Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult onset diabetes, is typically manageable, and drugs aren’t always necessary. A diet low in sugar, saturated fats, and trans fatty acids, along with moderate aerobic exercise can reduce symptoms.
But can type 2 diabetes be reversed?
If "reversing" means that we don't need medication anymore, that's possible for some people, provided they have not had diabetes for long and have fewer genetic factors involved. The best prescription for reducing the effects of type 2 diabetes include getting regular sleep, reducing intake of sugar, and losing extra weight, especially around the waistline.
