Loss of weight: it is possible to cure type 2 diabetes by losing this many kg

A common misconception is that sugar is the sole cause of diabetes. The tiny but significant role that your way of life, food, and exercise play in elevating blood sugar levels is yours.

Being diagnosed with diabetes requires constant vigilance over what you consume, as it is a chronic condition. You can manage your symptoms and lead a normal life with the help of medicine and exercise.

Reversing type 2 diabetes can also be achieved by losing weight. Obesity is known to increase the risk of diabetes, and there is some evidence from medical professionals that suggests reversing the disease may be possible with a certain weight loss goal.

People with diabetes were no longer diagnosed in studies conducted in Scotland that followed a low-calorie diet and dropped at least 33 pounds (about 15 kg).

Those suffering from type 2 diabetes may get relief from their symptoms after losing 33 pounds, according to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal BMJ. The study followed the participants for 10 years.

This conclusion was drawn from a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials that began in 2011. The participants were all newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes who were able to successfully control their blood sugar levels while adhering to a calorie-restrictive diet.

To lower your chances of getting diabetes and other chronic diseases, losing weight is a great place to start. The study's authors did note, however, that those newly diagnosed with diabetes should make a concerted effort to lose weight and reverse their disease within the first year. They stressed that taking care of the problem naturally is always preferable to using medication or injections.

We still don't know the exact cause of diabetes in certain people. The fact that being overweight and not exercising might exacerbate the problem is an undeniable fact. People who have an apple shape are more likely to have insulin resistance, which is a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes.

Insulin resistance is more common in people who fatten up their hips and thighs relative to their belly, rather than the other way around.

Chronic obesity no longer affects only the elderly. Though risk rises with age, more young people are being diagnosed with it. The disease is thought to cause 80–85% of diabetes. Recent research reveals obese persons are 80 times more likely to acquire type 2 diabetes than those with a BMI under 22.
