What is Type 2 diabetes?
The high glucose level in blood, hyperglycemia is occurring because a pancreas is not secreting enough insulin.
The main reason for type 2 diabetes is pancreas dysfunction. The pancreas cannot secrete enough insulin.
Why pancreas does not work well?
Some study found out about beta-cell; messengers to the brain when we need insulin. Beta-cells are the very low number in pancreas if you are Type 2 diabetes.
Unfortunately, medication is not directly and helping to cure or fix pancreas or grow the number of beta-cell. Medicine is for helping reduce symptoms. And, it is important to manage type 2 diabetes.
Is it possible to regain the number of beta-cell?
The answer is YES. Some studies found out that Normalization of both beta cell and hepatic insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes was achieved by dietary energy restriction alone. (Lim.)
This was associated with decreased pancreatic and liver triglyceride stores. (Lim.)
So, not focus on too much about sugar or carbs. Watch your fat and calorie intake. Try to take care of your pancreas and liver are the way to reduce type 2 diabetic symptoms.
