Moderate Weight Loss Can Influence Type 2 Diabetes Remission


Eating a healthy diet and getting exercise are key to managing type 2 diabetes. According to a recent study, weight loss of 10% or more in the first five years after a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes increases the probability of remission.





Participants in the study included 867 people between the ages of 40 and 69 with newly diagnosed diabetes. Weight change, diet, physical activity, and alcohol consumption were assessed at baseline and 1 year after diagnosis. Blood sugar levels and weight were assessed again after five years.





The researchers found that 30% of the participants had achieved diabetes remission after five years. Participants who had lost 10% of more of body weight were found to be twice as likely to be in remission compared to those who maintained the same weight. The participants in remission were able to achieve this without intensive lifestyle restrictions or extreme calorie restrictions.





The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine. It was published online ahead of print on September 3, 2019 in the journal Diabetic Medicine.
