Following the UKPDS (UK Prospective Diabetes Study) Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2D) has long been considered an incurable, progressive, chronic disease. But T2D has now been conclusively shown to be largely reversible, especially during the early years of the disease. The missing link in the UKPDS was the failure to consider lifestyle interventions. What the UKPDS actually revealed was that, without changing lifestyle, T2D is incurable and progressive. Recent studies show conclusively that with the proper lifestyle changes, T2D can be successfully reversed and consistently put into full or partial remission. The Counterpoint study and the DiRECT trial have led the way. A fasting-mimicking diet in mice was found to actually induce beta-cell neo-genesis and reverse T2D. The science in this presentation will completely change your treatment plans for patients with diabetes.
