      The scientists, who presented their findings at the American Diabetes Association conference, say that diet can help remove fat from the pancreas, resulting in normal secretion of insulin.

      The researchers selected 11 patients, who were then put on a 600 calorie-per-day diet of liquid drinks and non-starchy vegetables. They were closely monitored by a team of healthcare professionals. They were matched to a cohort group of healthy individuals (without diabetes). A medical team monitored them for eight weeks. The researchers also studied their liver fat content and pancreas insulin production.
