Cure Diabetes with Weight Loss, Not Drugs, Expert Says
Date:2/25/2008

RENO, Nev., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- According to leading weight loss expert, Dr. Kent Sasse, some of the most common and effective treatments for diabetes actually cause more weight gain. Insulin, the primary treatment for diabetes, is known to cause weight gain in diabetic patients, in part because insulin acts on the fat storage cells to block the breakdown and promote more storage of these fats.

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common and devastating ailments of our time and is usually cured by losing weight. Most of the treatment recommendations for diabetes from our doctors and the pharmaceutical industry mention weight loss as a good idea, but focus mainly on the drugs that are prescribed to bring down the blood sugar.

"More than 50% of Americans are now seriously overweight and as a result are at markedly increased risk for diabetes," says Dr. Sasse, founder and medical director of the International Metabolic Institute. "Effective, medically-supervised weight loss cures diabetes; it does not just treat a number like the blood glucose."

The right medically-supervised program can cut calories, employ meal replacements, offer counseling and behavior tools, utilize appetite suppressing medications, perform weight loss surgery, and plan the transition to a successful maintenance program. "It takes dedication and the right expert advice to successfully lose weight and cure diabetes, but the results are worth it," says Dr. Sasse.

To lose weight effectively and cure or prevent diabetes, experts recommend:

-- Commit to a medically-supervised weight loss program with a specialist

-- Plan on at least 1-2 years to create the habits for long term success

-- Reduce carbohydrate intake

-- Emphasize plenty of water, fiber, and natural foods

-- Consider weight loss
