I would have loved to see this as a whole data set including people who lost weight without specifically focusing on carb reduction. It’s hard to tell from this data if this is just a general “losing weight might result in T2D remission” or if the low carb diet was advantageous in some way.

You theoretically can get remission with any restrictive diet but carbs cause the greatest spike in insulin, followed by protein, then fat. To achieve remission you need to regain sensitivity to insulin. So think of someone taking a drug that builds up a resistance. Eating a diet high in the macro that releases the most insulin probably isn’t as effective so reducing carbs is usually the solution. This is why low carb high fat has generally proven to be the most effective approach as it reduces your insulin spikes the most. Just look into the work of Dr. Jason Fung who has made this his life work to cure T2D.

In Uni I did a couple research projects on T2D remission using high carbohydrate low fat diet... in the end as I followed the topic for several years thst followed my projects... there's so much research that

Fasting, High carb low fat, Low carb diet, Other intense lifestyle interventions, can all Lead to meaningful remission the big difference and key takeaway here is which if any of these are achievable and reach a sufficient level of compliance.

Eating a restrictive diet involves restrictions which can be difficult in every day situations.

In this study 1-year remission is 75% and 15-year is only 20%...
