Is Type 2 Diabetes Curable? (the 8 Things You Need To Know)

If you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you can probably relate to the feeling of helplessness and sheer devastation that comes along with it. It’s scary – and it’s a problem that’s spreading fast. In fact, almost 10 percent of Americans have diabetes, and nearly a third are undiagnosed. Plus, a shocking 1.4 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every single year (1). It’s pretty clear that diabetes is becoming a widespread issue and the truth is that it will affect all of us at one point or another, either directly or indirectly. But let’s be clear: a diagnosis of diabetes is not a death sentence. If you’ve been told you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, there is hope. And the first step to treating your diabetes is arming yourself with the knowledge of what’s going on in your body so that you can learn how to cure type 2 diabetes permanently. Let’s get started. Diabetes 101: It’s Not Just Sugar Most people think that diabetes is just a problem with blood sugar. Many doctors and health practitioners often simplify their explanation of diabetes, boiling it down to just having too much sugar in the blood because that’s easier than really exp Continue reading >>

    Regards,
    Sk ranjana Type 1 diabetes is, currently, incurable. Type 2 diabetes, in a lot of cases, can be reversed. Is reversal a cure? That is the debate. Does a cure need to be a magic tablet, or can it be an implemented change that's kept up 24/7?
    Unfortunately, not all type 2 diabetics can reverse their condition. Like type 1 diabetics, some have very little or no control over their outcome.
    Persistent diet, exercise and lifestyle changes can lower A1c's to a level deemed "non-diabetic". It must be noted that the lifestyle changes need to be maintained, otherwise the diabetes simply returns.
    So in short, type 2 diabetes can sometimes be reversed. But in my opinion, it can only be cured providing that the "cure" is a change that you implement and keep up for the rest of your life. Whether that is cure, or just permanent reversal is six and half a dozen... In my opinion though, a cure would mean that you could live your life normally without making adjustments to your lifestyle. Eat what and when you want and have a non-diabetic HbA1c, all without diet, exercise and carbohydrate intake limitations.
    You should go and see your Dr for more conclusive tests as to whether you need medication or not in this instance. I wish you well.
    Cheers,
    Grant

    Can diabetes Cure permanently???? If you can eat about 250 gms of carbohydrate per day (that's approximately equal to 750 calories worth or 1/3 of your daily diet, depending on what source of information you use), without your BG going through the roof then I would suggest you were no longer diabetic. However, if you are cutting carbs to achieve sensible BG then it's not exactly cured. Only my opinion.

Many early studies were done with the heavy-dut ...

    Not at the moment. By hopefully in a bit too distant future.

This will allow oxygen and nutrients to enter, and the insulin to exit, wh ...

    There is no cure for diabetes. Neither type 1 (juvenile onset or insulin-requiring) diabetes or type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes ever goes away. In type 1 diabetes, patients sometimes experience what physicians have come to call a "honeymoon period" shortly after the disease is diagnosed. During the "honeymoon period" diabetes may appear to go away for a period of a few months to a year. The patient's insulin needs are minimal and some patients may ...
