y math 2 diabetes represents 90% of diabetes cases. It is caused by the poor use of insulin by the body, and it mainly affects people over 40 years. Type 2 diabetes can lead to other problems, usually problems in the heart. We already know that supply is an important factor in the start of diabetes, but more and more studies are now focusing on "improved" diabetes diet.
Study over 2 years
Weight control, connecting a low calorie diet, healthier exercise practice and lifestyle, in some patients with type 2 diabetes, can reduce the need for antisocial drugs. This study, named in DiRECT and has published in And Lancet, not the first to reach these conclusions, but it confirms this theory with a lot of stability compared to others. The researchers wanted to evaluate the possibility of eliminating type 2 diabetes in a professionally led weight management program.
The 149 participants were between 20 and 65 years old, with type 2 diabetes for less than 6 years and with BMI from 27 to 45. For 1 to 2 years of study, patients were closely monitored: their Anti-asbetes prevention and antihypertensives treatment, to be completely replaced by and a well-managed diet : 825 to 853 kcal per day for 12 to 20 weeks, then reintroduce food gradually for 2 to 8 weeks, until structured support for weight maintenance.
Emphasize the importance of weight in diabetic patients
And the results are more positive: after a year, there were 68 (46%) of the 149 participants in the respect and 36 (24%) lost at least 15 kg. But after 2 years, these numbers dropped slightly: 53 (36%) of participants were praised and 17 (11%) had a weight loss of at least 15 kg. Despite appearances, these results continue very well, especially when looking at another angle: among participants who kept weight loss at least 10 kg during the 2 years, 29 (64 %) leakage of diabetes. This proves that real weight loss can help diabetes. So researchers want to demand doctors the importance of weight loss in people with type 2 diabetes.
