The short answer is that the rapid weight loss achieved with Lipotrim makes this type of diet an excellent option for type 2 diabetics.
Type 2 diabetes is a serious disease, taking a very large proportion of the national health budget, yet is largely a preventable disease.
Certain risk factors make a person more susceptible to suffering from type 2 diabetes, like genetics and age which you cannot do anything about.
The risk factor, carrying excess body weight, is common to a majority of type 2 diabetics. Type 2 diabetes can often be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle, keeping the body within a normal BMI range of 20 to 25 (this BMI range may be lower in certain populations). Type 2 diabetes can certainly be forced into remission by treating existing excess weight and obesity but is seldom seen owing to the failure of many traditional diets to achieve meaningful weight loss.

Rapid weight loss, using the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) Lipotrim, can often force the full remission of type 2 diabetes within days.
A type 2 diabetic would require the full co-operation of their GP. The pharmacy must liaise with the patient’s GP to explain the need to stop the diabetic medications on starting Phase 1 of the Lipotrim programme: Weightloss.
If the patient is using Insulin then the patient would be excluded from participating in the Lipotrim Programme and referred to their GP for help.
Once the GP and pharmacist are in agreement then on day 1 of the diet phase the patient would stop taking their diabetic medication with their blood glucose levels falling into the normal range within the first week, without he need for medication. It should be noted that the continuation of diabetic medication, or the cessation of medication without the consent of the GP, would be outside of the programme and prohibited.
The type 2 diabetic would carry on through the weight loss phase for the length of time required to lose the desired amount of excess weight, preferably down to a healthy BMI. Once this has been achieved, the patient would re-introduce traditional foods using the predetermined “Refeeding” menu.
The response to such a significant weight loss could be the full remission of the type 2 diabetes. This is NOT a cure. Diabetes can not be cured but forced into “silence”. This remission must be confirmed with the co-ordination of the GP and pharmacist and a lifelong weight maintenance strategy be followed.
The increased insulin sensitivity and decreased insulin resistance brought about by the loss of weight is likely to keep the type 2 diabetes at bay unless the weight is regained.
