while excess calories intake leads to a fatty liver and thus too much glucose, losing less that one gram of fat from the pancreas can re-start insulin production, reversing type 2 diabetes.
The study further claims that type 2 diabetes can be reversed by going on a low-calorie diet, which includes consuming just 600 calories a day for eight weeks.
The reversal of diabetes remains possible for at least ten years after the onset of the condition.
Such a diet helps bring about 15kg of weight loss on average. Weight loss has long been known to help reverse the condition.
Results showed within just a week of starting the diet. It caused a profound fall in insulin sensitivity.
Fasting blood sugar levels, of which diabetes patients have significantly higher, became normal within the same time frame.
