Type 2 diabetes is curable, but it has a rather high probability of relapse. This conclusion was reached by researchers from the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin and the Diabetes Center in Düsseldorf.
Experts have warned that in the coming decades, the world will become much more people suffering from this disease. In particular, they believe that by 2040 the number of people in Germany who are prone to type 2 diabetes will increase significantly.
"We expect an increase in the number of patients to 12 million people," they said. Such assumptions, scientists noted, require decisive actions aimed at finding new methods of prevention and therapy.
According to recent studies referenced by experts from the Federal Republic of Germany, type 2 diabetes has a high likelihood of remission if the patient follows a strict diet and loses weight. "85% of people who lost more than 15 kilograms, and were able to normalize the level of glucose in the blood, are in remission," the researchers said.
Earlier, Canadian researchers, based on a two-day experiment, identified the “most proper breakfast” for people with diabetes.
As it turned out, a fat and low-carb omelet helped prevent sugar emissions immediately after a meal, while the effect persisted throughout the day.
However, the famous Russian nutritionist Margarita Korolev questioned the results of the experiment. In her opinion, the diet of both a healthy person and a person suffering from any disease should be varied.
