http://www.diabetes.co.uk/in-depth/can-diabetes-complications-reversed/ "There are fascinating reports that suggest diabetes complications are reversible. Many will know the story of Dr. Richard Bernstein, who had kidney, eye and neurological complications as a result of type 1 diabetes. Dr. Bernstein documented his story in his book Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution. Remarkably, against orthodox practice, he worked out what we now recognise as the ketogenic diet, and found that, by improving his control, he could reverse his complications. Researchers in Japan reached similar conclusions when they examined the effects of a kidney transplant. The donor had type 2 diabetes, the recipient did not. At the time of the transplant, the kidneys had changed as a result of the diabetes, but after a year in the non-diabetic recipient those changes had reversed. There was also a report from a kidney donor with type 1 diabetes who had been showing signs of diabetic kidney disease. Within six months of being transplanted into a non-diabetic host, the kidney disease had disappeared completely. There are also reports of diabetes complications being reversed after pancreas transplants. All of which suggests that it is not only possible to slow complications, but to reverse them completely."
