We review some of the latest scientific research on type 2 diabetes. Research shows that unlike type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes is not a chronic and progressive disease and can in most cases be prevented as well as reversed/cured with lifestyle changes alone, with little or no medication, and in particular, with the addition of two powerful aides: intermittent fasting and high intensity interval training (HIIT).
We also look at talking to your doctor and other health care professionals. Sharing information with your health care team about treatments you are pursuing is essential. For example, some drugs and herbs can create serious interactions that could even jeopardize your life, let alone your treatment goals. Or, the side effects of one treatment can be misidentified as the symptoms of a disease. This can easily happen if there is not good communication. We provide a checklist to help you & your health care professional achieve a clear understanding of what each of you is doing, and why.
