Nov 24, 2020
The Reality of Type 2 Diabetes Reversal & Remission
The road to type 2 diabetes remission or reversal is not as simple as eating better and exercising more. Improving outcomes in diabetes is a much more complex system. The reported rates of remission are often different from what the research actually says. In this podcast episode, we hear from a diabetes care and education expert on where the research stands on diabetes reversal, and what we can learn about diabetes management.
Of all the studies I’ve looked at on diabetes remission, this holds true: it doesn’t last. It’s fleeting.”
Tune in to this episode to learn about:
- current research on diabetes remission
- realities of long-term diabetes reversal
- stigma of overweight and obesity
- potential side effects of extreme diet and exercise measures
- misconceptions about diabetes medications
Diabetes should be managed in the least invasive way possible so that people can do other things that are important to them and live a very fulfilled life.”
