Type 2 diabetes: NHS to offer 800-calorie diet treatment
Thousands of people with type 2 diabetes in England are to be prescribed a very low-calorie diet in the hope of reversing their condition.
Under the pilot they will be restricted to 800 calories a day, in the form of soups and shakes, for three months.
When the diet was trialled last year, almost half of those involved managed to put their diabetes into remission.
NHS England has also announced it's expanding a programme to prevent people developing type 2 diabetes.
