A LOW-CALORIE diet of soups and shakes can reverse Type-2 diabetes.
More than a third of patients who followed the regime were found to be free of the illness after two years.
The research showed 46 per cent of patients who took part were in remission after one year, the Daily Mail reported.
Those who managed to stay diabetes-free lost an average of 1st 9lb each — adding to growing evidence that the condition can be defeated with weight loss.
The NHS is planning to trial a fat-free soup and shakes diet with 5,000 participants. If successful it may be rolled out nationally.
Nearly five million Brits have diabetes with 90 per cent of them living with the type 2 strain — linked to poor diet and lack of exercise. It can lead to liver failure, strokes and blindness.
