According to the Australian institute of health and welfare, around 1.3 million people were newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes between 2000 and 2020 in Australia. Type 2 Diabetes is on a continuous increase and diagnoses are becoming more prevalent even in younger age groups. This is the real pandemic.
Type 2 diabetes has long been identified as an incurable and progressive chronic condition which will ultimately require more medications and insulin injections…This is false. The evidence is clear that type 2 diabetes reversal/remission is achievable. In fact, we have evidence of type 2 diabetes remission via exercise and diet, dating back to 1991.
Despite mounting evidence that reversal/remission is possible, achieving reversal/remission is not often promoted by our health-care system and government. In fact, reversal is not even a goal in diabetes guidelines at all. The current standard of care (medications without lifestyle change) is failing. The standard of care is the reason why type 2 diabetes is a “progressive condition” and there is scientific evidence to back this.
Although genetics play a role in the cause of type 2 diabetes, lifestyle factors like an unhealthy diet and low levels of physical activity play an even BIGGER role in the cause of type 2 diabetes. Therefore, changing your lifestyle, via the addition of exercise and a healthy diabetic-friendly diet can result in diabetes remission/reversal.
