We have had some amazing coverage this piece was in The Daily Star.
Thanks for it. From everyone with #Type2Diabetes...
We have had some amazing coverage for #DiabetesAwarenessWeek this year. This piece was in the Daily Star. Thanks for it.
And we some great pieces written about #TheFastFix AND http://www.befreeoftype2d.co.uk and about me as Dan Sodergren as the founder of one and the successful participant in the other :)
What I found stunning is the difference in the writing of the pieces. So am going to show them all in our blog and link to them.
TYPE-2 diabetes symptoms affect thousands of Brits – so ITV: The Fast Fix revealed how to prevent them.
New research suggests that it could be possible to reverse type-2 diabetes symptoms in a matter of weeks.
In a radical experiment, ITV challenged five patients to make some big changes to their lifestyles.
The Fast Fix: Diabetes explored whether or not the group could alter their diagnosis in a month.
So is it possible to do so?
In the ITV show, doctors monitored the participants as they cut back on how much food they ate. For a month, the group survived on just 800 calories every day.
They consumed four liquid meals a day in the form of 200 calorie diet shakes. While this is a very extreme approach to type-2 diabetes, there was a significant improvement in the group’s health.
The study showed that one patient [ME aka Dan Sodergren Founder of BeFreeOfType2D.co.uk] shook off symptoms in four weeks by cutting his liver fat percentage from 27.5 to 7.5.
Others celebrated other successes, including dramatically reducing their glucose levels.
This low calorie plan is considered to be a “starvation diet”, so you should always consult your doctor before restricting your food intake.
While many won’t go to such extreme lengths to reduce their diabetes symptoms, the experiment showed that it was possible.
Professor Jason Gill, a leading expert in the condition, said:
“People used to think diabetes was irreversible but recent research suggests this is not the case.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to test this in a controlled setting.”
Around 549,000 people in the UK are believed to be battling type-2 diabetes.
This puts a huge strain on the NHS – and 20% of the government body’s budget is spent on the disease annually.
Many patients are unaware that they can reduce symptoms of diabetes by changing their lifestyles.
Sufferers should try and keep up healthy diet and fitness regimes, although they don’t have to cut their calorie intake too drastically.
