Here’s what they have to say on the topic:
"NIDDK-funded research has shown that losing a modest amount of weight — about 15 pounds — through diet and exercise can actually cut your risk of getting type 2 diabetes by as much as 58 percent in people at high risk.
NIDDK vigorously supports research to help people with diabetes manage their disease and prevent the development of diabetes-related complications. For example, NIDDK has recently begun a large-scale clinical trial in people with type 2 diabetes comparing the effectiveness of four medications — in combination with the drug metformin — to find which drug combination works best for which groups of people. It is the kind of study that could only be accomplished with the support of NIH."

What’s the answer? Stop subsidies for the production of sweeteners and refined carbohydrates while simultaneously developing drugs to counter their effects on the body! The potential side effects of metformin alone include a one-in-ten chance of digestive disturbances including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.
You can eliminate diabetes not by “dieting”, but by committing to a low-carbohydrate lifestyle and eliminating sugars and most grain products. You’ll be surprised how other health issues also resolve!
