A ‘game-changing’ diet can help people with type 2 diabetes reverse the condition – even when they are not overweight.

Experts previously found it can be reversed through dramatic weight loss, with most sufferers being overweight or obese.

Now a study putting ‘normal-weight’ people on a diet of shakes and vegetables has found they, too, can do it.

Around 10 per cent of those with diabetes fall into this category – more than 400,000 people across the UK.

Researchers led by the University of Newcastle recruited 20 people with a normal body mass index (BMI) and type 2 diabetes.

Most were found to have a high amount of fat in their liver or pancreas, putting them in a group known as TOFIs – thin on the outside and fat on the inside.

But losing weight on the shakes and veg diet, followed by weeks of eating sensibly, saw 70 per cent of those in the trial reverse their diabetes.
