Diabetes remission could be diagnosed after three months of normoglycemic state after stopping any medication for diabetes, or after six months of lifestyle intervention and three months without medication that results in normoglycemic state. In our clinic, we perform medical nutrition therapy for diabetes. We will describe a case with a person with obesity and early diagnosed diabetes who, after nutritional intervention lost 30 kg and metabolic parameters normalized and, after six months of normalized levels. We will describe the nutritional models we are using and the therapeutical approach for obesity.
