BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – Type 2 diabetes is not only preventable, but it also is reversible if someone has the right tools.

Dr. Shayesteh said 76 percent of people with Type 2 diabetes get it from non-genetic factors, such as poor diet and lack of exercise. He said 24 percent of people are predisposed to the disease through their genes but new research shows even genetic type 2 diabetes can be reversed through lifestyle changes.
