Type 2 diabetes in newly diagnosed 'can be reversed'

Going on an extreme diet to lose excess fat could help some people get rid of diabetes.

An extreme eight-week diet of 600 calories a day can reverse Type 2 diabetes in people newly diagnosed with the disease, says a Diabetologia study.

Newcastle University researchers found the low-calorie diet reduced fat levels in the pancreas and liver, which helped insulin production return to normal.
