Weight Loss Produces Remission of Type 2 Diabetes in Some Patients

(From ScienceDaily)

A clinical trial recently showed that nearly half of individuals with type 2 diabetes achieved remission to a non-diabetic state after a weight-loss intervention delivered within six years of diagnosis. Now a new study [r]eveals that this successful response to weight loss is associated with the early and sustained improvement in the functioning of pancreatic beta cells.

[Editor’s note: Other research suggests that the cure may lie in eating less, thereby putting less demand on pancreas. Weight loss may be another effect, not the cause, of the cure.]
