This isn't really surprising to me.  Type II diabetes is really about a body hitting it's limits in energy storage.  Insulin can't do it's job anymore because all the cells are already super saturated.  There is a lot of evidence that fat cells can't release energy during periods of higher insulin levels.  Running a calorie deficit and maintaining low insulin levels will give a body a chance to shed stored calories.  Once the cells are depleted of excess energy they become insulin sensitive again.

Side note: getting fat is, oddly enough, a way of pushing back diabetes.  The fat growth is locking of excess calories which would result in people coming down with type II faster.  There are folks who basically can not get fat and they go from thin and seemingly healthy straight to diabetes.

That was my mom. She was thin all her life yet came down with T2 in her mid-60s.
