Scientists have demonstrated the possibility of getting rid of type 2 diabetes

There are about 400 million people with type 2 diabetes in the world. It is possible to prevent the development of this disease if you monitor your weight, do exercises and have a balanced diet. But recent studies show that you can reverse the already developed ailment, Science Alert reports.

The University of Cambridge has proved that it is possible to get rid of diabetes for at least five years, if you reduce the body weight by 10%. The study involved 867 people aged 40-69 who were recently diagnosed with diabetes. For five years, the volunteers have received standard therapy or followed recommendations as part of an innovative approach.

As a result, the remission stage was observed in 30% of people. In comparison with the volunteers who maintained the same weight for five years, the remission stage was observed 2 times more likely in the people who lost at least 10% of their body weight. Such results were reached without extreme diets and revolutionary changes in lifestyle.
