London: Here`s some good news for people suffering from Type 2 diabetes -- eating a low-calorie diet everyday for just four months could cure the disease, a new study has revealed.A team at Leiden University in the Netherlands says its findings may revolutionise the treatment of the lifelong condition with no cure, and caused by pancreas not producing enough insulin to break down glucose in the blood.In their study, researchers found that diabetics who slashed the calories they ate each day actually had a far more significant improvement in the condition and in their general health than medication offered.They no longer needed life-saving insulin, the level of dangerous fat built up around their hearts was significantly reduced and their cardiac function improved."It is striking to see how a relatively simple intervention of a very low-calorie diet effectively cures Type 2 diabetes. Moreover, the effects are long term, illustrating the potential of this method."Lifestyle interventions may have more powerful beneficial cardiac effects than medication in these patients," a newspaper quoted the study`s lead author Sebastiaan Hammer as saying.
