How Weight Loss Can Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

An analysis published in The BMJ aims to let doctors and the public in on a little-known secret: Type 2 diabetes, in many cases, is curable. People can reverse their diabetes by losing about 33 pounds, say the authors of the new paper, despite popular belief that the diagnosis is always a permanent one. If more people were striving for this goal, and if more doctors were documenting instances of diabetes remission, complication rates and health-care costs could both be reduced dramatically, the authors say. The analysis is based on evidence from recent clinical trials. In one from 2011, people who were recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes returned their blood sugar levels to normal when they lost weight on a calorie-restrictive diet. In a 2016 follow-up study, people who had been diabetic for up to 10 years were able to reverse their condition when they lost about 33 pounds. Mike Lean, professor of human nutrition at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, is an author of both the new analysis and of those earlier trials. He says a person’s likelihood of remission from diabetes is greatest in the first five years after being diagnosed. Type 2 diabetes, he wrote in an email, is a disease “best avoided by avoiding the weight gain that drives it.” For people who do develop it, he believes that evidence-based weight-loss programs could help them achieve lasting remission. “Not all can do it, but they should all be given the chance with good support,&rd...

AbstractPurposeExcessive meat intake has been researched as a major cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD) among healthy adults, but data on this topic in Asian patients with diabetes are sparse. The quantity and variety of available meats vary widely between Asian and Western countries. As part of a nationwide cohort study we investigated the relationship between meat intake and incidence of CVD in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes aged 40 –70 years with HbA1c ≥ 6.5%.MethodsAnalyzed were 1353 responders to a baseline dietary survey assessed by the Food Frequency Questionnaire based on food group...

When I was in South Africa last year, I met a revolutionary winemaker… His wine was completely organic. It had no toxins, and it contained powerful antioxidant properties. It was infused with a local herb called rooibos, also known as “red bush.” You may have seen rooibos tea on supermarket shelves. I immediately knew this wine should be made widely available in America — and I’m still hopeful a distributor will bring it here. I enjoy a nice glass of red wine from time to time, but the trouble with most of the wines sold in America is that they’re loaded with dangerous chemicals. Winema...

This study aims to: (i) measure medication adherence across multiple conditions and therapeutic drug groups in older community-dwelling patients, and (ii) examine the effect of multimorbidity on adherence.MethodsThis is a retrospective cohort study of medication adherence in 855 community-dwelling patients aged ≥ 70 years from 15 practices in Ireland using the Health Service Executive Primary Care Reimbursement Service (HSE-PCRS) pharmacy claims database. Multimorbidity was measured using the RxRisk-V and by the number of different drug classes. The RxRisk-V algorithm classifies prescription drug fill s into...

Up until the first half of the twentieth century, large-scale health disasters were mostly due to natural causes (earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, etc.) or infections (e.g., smallpox, influenza epidemics, cholera). But something peculiar happened as we entered the second half of the century: Health disasters due to natural causes became dwarfed by large-scale health disasters that are man-made. Here’s a list of the Six Worst U.S. Health Disasters of the Last 50 Years, mostly man-made phenomena that have exacted huge tolls: widespread disease, premature death, poorly managed (though nonetheless highly profitable fo...

The objectives of this systematic review were to estimate the incidence, prevalence and natural history of the metabolic (vascular) syndrome (MVS) among adults in different European countries. Furthermore, we assessed its co-incidence with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). PubMed, MedLine, and EMBASE (via Ovid) were searched for relevant studies. After reading 116 full-text articles to find eligible ones, 66 publications met our inclusion criteria. Data for the incidence are based on a study from Portugal, in which the incidence rate for the MVS was 47.2/1000 person-years. Prevalence varied strongly...

BOSTON (CBS) – More good news for coffee lovers. According to a large review or more than 200 studies, drinking three cups a day of either caffeinated or decaffeinated brew can reduce your risk of dying from all causes by 17 percent and can reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes. (WBZ-TV) Drinking caffeinated coffee, in particular, was linked to lower risks for heart disease, liver disease, cancer and other health problems. Coffee did pose some health risks.  For example, high coffee consumption in pregnancy was linked to miscarriage, low birth weight and preterm birth and may slightly increase the risk of fracture...
