Losing 15 percent of your bodyweight may be the best treatment for diabetes – Study Finds (Me: worked for me – 20 years diabetes free)

 

Study authors find that a drop in bodyweight of 15 percent should become the primary focus for patients dealing with type 2 diabetes (T2D). They add significant weight loss shows the potential to slow or even reverse the condition in many cases. Weight loss also cuts down on the medical complications which can stem from having diabetes while being overweight.

“We propose that for most patients with type 2 diabetes without cardiovascular disease, the main treatment focus should be managing the key underlying abnormality and driver of the disease: obesity,” says paper co-author Dr. Ildiko Lingvay from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in a media release.
