Type 2 diabetes is not for life

Almost half of the patients with Type 2 diabetes supported by their GPs on a weight loss programme were able to reverse their diabetes in a year, a study has found.

These findings come from the DiRECT Study - a project funded by Diabetes UK.  Professor John Mathers, Professor Ashley Adamson and Alison Barnes are members of the DiRECT Study team.  The results from this study have been published in The Lancet.
