New analysis: Weight loss can reverse type 2 diabetes

Young healthy girl on home scales

Current treatment of type 2 diabetes focuses on managing the disease with medications (mostly). But a new analysis finds that more should be done to help patients lose weight in the long run, given its potential to reverse the disease.

People can reverse their diabetes by losing about 33 pounds, say the authors of the new paper, despite popular belief that the diagnosis is always a permanent one. If more people were striving for this goal, and if more doctors were documenting instances of diabetes remission, complication rates and health-care costs could both be reduced dramatically, the authors say.
