I don't have Type 2 diabetes but I am concerned my weight is a tad too much and in particular what fat I have is around my middle, which probably means I have too much visceral fat, that is fat around and in my liver etc. Michael Mosely, he of the 5:2 diet fame, has written another book about a fairly extreme diet which on the evidence he presents can be very successful in reversing Type 2 diabetes in many diagnosed with the disease. It doesn't always work, those who have been recently diagnosed have the best chance (over 80%) while those who have had the disease for many years have a lower success rate, 50% or so. I'm now girding my loins to give this diet a go, just need to finish the wine box I brought back from France first! Anyone who has Type 2 should have a read of the book, which is a few pounds on Kindle, including those who don't think they are overweight as it does cover cases where people were described by friends as "thin" and therefore didn't need to diet but who still had the hidden visceral fat which seems to be the problem. Of course this won't work for everyone and the trials to date have been limited, a much larger trial is underway, but why wait for that to finish? The diet won't do you any harm though you are advised to consult your doctor as those on blood pressure tablets may suffer from low blood pressure as the weight comes off. I have a blood pressure monitor so will monitor my own blood pressure.

As always, don't take medical advice from a forum, read the book and then make up your own mind.
