Intensive medical treatment reverses type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes can be reversed with intensive medical treatment using oral medications, insulin and lifestyle therapies, according to a small study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. The study researchers reported that short course of intensive lifestyle and drug therapy achieves on-treatment normoglycemia and promotes sustained weight loss. It may also achieve prolonged, drug-free diabetes remission and strongly supports ongoing studies of novel medical regimens targeting remission.

Acarbose promotes remission of early and late dumping syndromes

Acarbose, a glucosidase inhibitor that slows carbohydrate digestion, has been found to result in complete remission of dumping syndrome (DS) in most subjects and substantially decreased the frequency and intensity of both early and late DS events. The study researchers from Brazil, stated that previous studies have been reported an associated acarbose with the remission of late dumping, although not early dumping. Therefore, they wanted to evaluate the role of acarbose in dumping syndrome prevention and treatment and in resistive exercises resistance in bariatric subjects.
