LIVINGLIVING

year results of the DiRECT study are

eagerly anticipated, as the case for

remission-centred Type 2 diabetes care

as an option for some individuals depends

upon a thorough understanding of the

longer-term benefits. If people can remain

in remission, and therefore reduce their

risk of developing serious diabetes-related

complications in the future, the cost

savings to the NHS could be significant.

Costs aside, remission from Type 2 - and

the possibility of living free of the condition

- has to be the preferred option for people

and clinicians alike."

New T2 treatment

A new once-weekly injection to treat Type

2 diabetes is now available in the UK.

Manufactured by Novo Nordisk, Ozempic

(semaglutide) works by mimicking the

GLP-1 hormone produced in the gut,

which lowers post-meal blood sugar levels

as well as slowing glucose absorption

into the bloodstream. It should be used

alongside diet and exercise, either as a

single form of treatment when metformin

isn't suitable, or can be used as part of a

combination of treatments.

Conquering T2

A book charting one man's weight loss

and Type 2 reversal is released this month.

Conquer Type 2 Diabetes, by Richard

Shaw - a self-confessed 'fat middle-aged

man' - documents how he lost 31kg

(63lb, or nearly five stones) and reversed

his Type 2 diabetes. Shaw, then 54,

was sedentary and weighed over 117kg

(260lb, nearly 19st) when he decided to

do something about his diagnosis.

Inspired by the results of the DiRECT

clinical trial at Newcastle University, he set

about reversing the condition by following

a carefully-structured, low-carb diet

and starting a modest exercise regime.

He details how he lost 31kg kilos over

five months, and includes his meal and

exercise plan, with sections on carbs,

calories and cravings, plus 40 recipes to

inspire healthier eating habits.

We know that it can be possible for

some people - particularly in the first few

years of diagnosis - to reverse Type 2

diabetes, and Shaw proposes an eating

plan and approach to weight loss that,

he says, in many cases can really can

transform lives.
