How to Reverse Diabetes with Weight Loss by Slim Cuisine

OVERVIEW
Almost 1 in 9 Singaporeans have diabetes. It is a serious condition which could lead to blindness, heart failure, kidney failure, and amputation of the limbs. Every year, an average of 1,200 diabetic patients undergo limb amputations in Singapore.

CAUSE OF TYPE 2 DIABETES
Type 2 Diabetes commonly affects people who are overweight. Although it is more widespread in people over 40 years old, an increasing number of children and young adults are developing Type 2 Diabetes. This could be due to the fact that Singaporeans are consuming 30% more calories as compared to a decade ago. This calorie surplus leads to weight gain.

HOW TO CONTROL TYPE 2 DIABETES
Besides oral medication, Type 2 Diabetes can be controlled with a proper diet. A research done by Newcastle University showed that going on a low-calorie diet could reverse diabetes.

The research placed "30 people with Type 2 diabetes on a 700- calorie diet a day for eight weeks. Each person lost about 14kg on average. For many, their diabetes disappeared. Almost half of them did not have any symptoms of diabetes for nearly six months after they gradually went back to having a more normal diet which helped them to maintain their weight loss.”
