Millions of diabetics, especially in Britain, are in new hopes as researchers say that diabetes can now be reversed. This study has been an exceptional breakthrough, especially for Brits.

A lot of experts believed that Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are incurable and get worse over time. But a new research brings the possibility that dramatic changes in diet can reverse the disease in some people.

A report from New York Times said that recently, a small clinical study in England had studied the effects of a strict liquid diet on 30 people who had Type 2 diabetes for 23 years. Almost half of those studied had remission which lasted six months after the diet was over.

The basic rule is controlling your blood sugar levels. According to Daily mail, there is what they call the 5:2 diet which is eating normally five days a week then cutting calories to around 600 on the other two days. A recent study said that the diet could bring blood sugar levels back to normal (no medications) in about 87 percent of people who had been diabetic for less than 4 years and a half for those who had diabetes for more than 8 years.

Another is the common jab, named Generic-Guerin (BCG) jab which is used for tuberculosis, could be used to reverse the Type 1 diabetes. This jab can help regenerate insulin-making cells which could effectively reverse diabetes.

The BCG vaccine is about 80 percent effective in preventing TB for 15 years. And with results of the initial tests with those who had diabetes for an average of 15 years proved that insulin production could be restored by the use of this booster injection.

These treatments are effective solutions to the health epidemic that the UK is experiencing today. Reports say that more than four million Britons have diabetes today and the rates even doubled for the past 20 years.

People with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes would greatly benefit from these treatments that could regenerate insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.
