Is there a cure for diabetes?
Wondering how to put your diabetes into remission? More people than ever are at risk of Type 2 diabetes. If nothing changes, more than five million people will have diabetes in the UK by 2025.
This disease of blood sugar threatens the very existence of the NHS through the cost of treatment and the secondary cost of managing the health problems that stem from uncontrolled blood sugar levels. However, in amongst all the negative press around diabetes, there have been some exciting developments of recent years.
How to put your diabetes into remission
Previously thought to be a life sentence, there is now exciting research showing people diagnosed with diabetes can put their condition into remission and live free from medication. This concept of remission or ‘cure’ has generated huge excitement in the medical community, where the cost of medicating those with diabetes eats into valuable and limited local practice budgets. The key to this remission is a change in lifestyle. A combination of weight loss, regular exercise, plus dietary controls are the crucial ingredients to turn this cruel disease on its head. Small steps done in the right way can make a huge difference.
Case study – diabetes in remission
If you don’t believe us take the words of our member Henry noted below. Henry is our second member to put his diabetes into remission through attending Viavi:be, and one of the reasons our health coach team based in Summertown, North Oxford, get so much satisfaction from supporting the health and future health of all of our members.
‘The proof of the cooking is in the eating’, which is entirely the wrong analogy to use to demonstrate a welcome piece of news from my GP. I have turned around my diabetes and I am in remission. Viavi:be has provided the route to solve many of my health issues and I continue to row back from a life of debauchery, depravity and self-indulgence. The reduction in body weight (19%), body fat (17%), blood pressure (37%), with improved strength (19%) and aerobic fitness (26%) have been worthwhile but going into remission, in relation to diabetes, has been the ‘jewel in the crown’.Sensible dieting, on the advice of the staff, plus regular and consistent exercise, which is not onerous, have proved their worth.
The care and consideration of the Health Team must never be underrated as they have monitored diligently my progress and adapted the training programme to maximise the improvement of my health. For what more could one ask? Henry Flower
