Intensive lifestyle intervention led to partial remission of type 2 diabetes | Endocrinology

Endocrinology | According to data from a new study published in JAMA, overweight adults who participated in an intensive lifestyle intervention were more likely to have partial remission of type 2 diabetes.
Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

"PARTIAL"!  Not full as so many articles in the media mistakenly report.  Beware too of fraudulent claims by supposed experts and people selling products, plans, etc. to supposedly "reverse" type 2 diabetes.  If you have a loved one with type 2 diabetes, empower them, be supportive of efforts to be as healthy as possible.  But do NOT blame them for having the disease.
