Millions of people suffering from Type 2 diabetes could be cured of the disease if they just lost weight, a new study suggests.
Scientists at Newcastle University have shown the disease is caused by fat accumulating in the pancreas and losing less than one gram from the organ can reverse the life-limiting illness and restore insulin production.
Type 2 diabetes affects 3.3 million people in England and Wales and 29.1 million people or 9.3% of
the U.S. population have diabetes and Canada ! More than 10 million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes and until now, was thought to be chronic. It can lead to blindness, stroke, kidney failure and limb amputation.
