The leading health agency in the UK has announced that the type 2 diabetes diet that is no longer a chronic disease has completed the testing phase and is about to officially apply to the first 5,000 patients.
Under the UK National Health Service's plan, the first 5,000 patients will start receiving treatment by April next year. The final clinical trial led by New Castle University (UK) has shown great success by helping 10 people with chronic diabetes gradually regain their ability to control blood sugar. They also lost up to 15 kg after 1 year of experiment.

Professor Roy Taylor, who led the study, confirmed that we can now see type diabetes as a simple problem, when an individual accumulates more fat than they can cope. Through a diet that is consistent enough, they can reduce fat and fight off the disease.
This dietary treatment requires patients to get only 800 calories a day, under strict medical supervision.
This diet is based on the mechanism of type 2 diabetes : excess calories lead to fatty liver, causing the liver to produce too much glucose. The excess fat can no longer then safely reside under the skin, begin to move into the pancreas, causing the cells here to no longer produce insulin successfully, causing diabetes. But the researchers found that with less than 1 g of fat from the pancreas, the insulin production process could be restarted. Persistent diet like this, the patient can help the pancreas gradually functioning normally again, then completely cured!
