Crash diet 'reverses effects of diabetes'

Study finds most common form of diabetes can be reversed by extreme diet.



    Researchers say a new study has found that diabetes can be reversed by a low-calorie diet.

    More than 300 million people around the world have diabetes, with around 90 per cent of those suffering from the type two version, caused by high levels of glucose in the blood, which is linked to over-eating and obesity.

    In 2004, about 3.4 million people died as a result from the disease, and  deaths from diabetes are expected to double by 2030.
