A diagnosis of type 2 diabetes is usually followed by instructions – recommendations to the newly diagnosed patient regarding the best way to manage the disease, the already existing complications as well as to prevent new ones.
Patients with type 2 diabetes know that it is a chronic progressive disease and, therefore, they may have to receive multiple medication aiming on treating the disease, at the symptom level, for the rest of their life.
From the moment of diagnosis, patients with type 2 diabetes are affected psychologically; they develop fear for the future and are frequently disappointed when medication fails.
However, current studies show that type 2 diabetes may regress with a special diet of very low calories, therefore blood sugar control may be achieved without medication.
A two-year clinical study showed that more than one third (36%) of patients (between 20-65 years of age) managed to achieve a regression of type 2 diabetes with a specially designed diet under medical supervision.
The results of the study show that the regression of type 2 diabetes is closely related to the reduction of body weight. Specifically, for two thirds (64%) of patients who lost more than 10 Kg, the regression of type 2 diabetes maintained for two more years.
The chances of maintaining this regression increase when special dietary intervention is implemented within a short time from diagnosis.
Patients with type 2 diabetes, who are following a weight regulation program similar to that of the study, seem to enjoy additional benefits, such as the continuous improvement of their quality of life.
The special dietary protocols of Eurodiet Med for the regression of type 2 diabetes have been designed based on the latest scientific data and are a valuable tool in the treatment of obese patients with type 2 diabetes.
This approach offers multiple metabolic benefits, as it leads to greater weight loss, an improved glycaemic and lipidaemic profile, greater reduction in blood pressure, as well as a reduction – or even termination – of medication.
