    Just logged on to see what the reaction to tonight's Channel 4 News bombshell was. The trailer said that Type 2 diabetes could be reversed and maintained by losing weight. I couldn't watch at 7pm, so I missed this this life-changing news item.
    Anybody see it?

    Hey there @nomoredonuts
    There's a pretty good thread forming in the Diabetes Research Forum. You should check that one out.
    :)

    I saw theBBC evening news@nomredonuts.The Beeb ran the detail on BBC1 and our local Scottish news
    This is being discussed on another thread.I was really excited as I'd just arrived back home after discussing with a new GP how I'd achieved anHbA1c result of 41 with a Lowcarb diet.

    its a shake diet. really how many years have we been warned off those. thought it was funny the woman that was in remission was cooking a really enormous potato. sadly i suspect a lot of those dieters will fail to change to a low carb eating style and the old diabetes will comeback. and they will feel failures.

    It is the latest results from the ND exercise. There are currently 2 threads ongoing about it, with links to the main report. The BBC report is the usual bad journalism.

    The channel 4 one was, as usual, much better journalism although still imho too many images of fatties to characterise T2

    My DN mentioned this today. She expressed concern about people going into starvation mode, and not being able to eat much afterwards without gaining weight. She also expressed concern that people may perceive the term 'remission' as 'cured' and their diabetes will come back once they start eating ordinary food again.

    There are many (18%?) type 2 diabetics who are already slim at diagnosis, i wonder how the diet would affect them?
