When you are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (also known as adult-onset diabetes), you’re advised to accept it as a lifelong disease that may require oral medications and—for 50% of people with type 2 diabetes—insulin within 10 years.

But what if that wasn’t the case? What if you could follow a strict low calorie diet for 2 months and get rid of your diabetes forever? Well, for some of you, it’s possible. Here’s what you need to know.

Those are good odds.
