New promise for Type 2 Diabetes

A new study on type 2 diabetes from Newcastle University suggest that people suffering from this disease could be cured if they lost weight. The following is a summary on the article:

“Scientists at Newcastle University have shown the disease is caused by fat accumulating in the pancreas. Losing less than one gram from the organ can reverse the life-limiting illness and restore insulin production.

Type 2 diabetes until now, was thought to be chronic. It can lead to blindness, stroke, kidney failure and limb amputation.

But now researchers at Newcastle have shown that the be reversed, even in obese people who have had the condition for a long time.

18 obese people with Type 2 diabetes who were given gastric band surgery and put on a restricted diet for eight weeks were cured of their condition. During the trial the patients, aged between 25 and 65, lost an average of 13 per cent of their body weight. Crucially they also lost 0.6 grams of fat from their pancreas, allowing the organ to secrete normal levels of insulin.

The team is now planning a larger two year study involving 200 people with Glasgow University to check that the findings can be replicated and weight loss can be sustained for two years.”
