Is Type 2 Diabetes Reversible?

Great news: Type 2 Diabetes is absolutely reversible! And the cure can be simple: weight loss. However, although the solution is simple, it is by no means easy. That is why we at Oregon Medical Weight Loss are here to help you.

In a recent study, over 50% of participants reversed their Type 2 Diabetes after losing just 22lbs. Of patients who were able to lose over 33lbs, an impressive 86% reversed their diabetes! These results show that with the correct diet and lifestyle changes, reaching a non-diabetic state is possible within 12 months. This is very exciting news! However, losing weight is certainly challenging and can be intimidating. Even more difficult can be keeping the weight off long term. That is where Oregon Medical Weight Loss can help and guide you through the process.

Type 2 Diabetes does not have to be a permanent lifelong condition.  Reversing Type 2 diabetes can lead to a significant improvement in quality of life and can help dramatically reduce one’s medical costs. One of the best ways to reverse diabetes is through a structured weight loss program like Oregon Medical Weight Loss. It will not be easy, but it is certainly possible and the results are so worth it! The evidence-based weight loss program from Oregon Medical Weight Loss can help you lose the weight to reverse Type 2 Diabetes, significantly improve your quality of life and reduce your medical costs!
