Reversing type 2 diabetes

Can type 2 diabetes be reversed?

A lot of people that are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes are told that it is a progressive disease with lifelong medications that only get worse over time and the best they can do is manage the condition. That is not true.

How low carbohydrate diets work

When we reduce the amount of carbohydrates we eat, our blood glucose does not spike, meaning that blood-glucose-lowering medications are no longer needed to keep our blood glucose levels within the normal range. It also means our bodies require less insulin response and over time, we become sensitive to insulin.

Talk to your doctor before changing your diet

If you have type 2 diabetes, it is not safe for people with type 2 diabetes to attempt to change their diet without a doctor’s oversight. This is because your blood glucose can get dangerously low, especially where blood-glucose-lowering medications are involved. Your doctor will often reduce your medication dosages until you are off all medications.
