Am I Cured Of Diabetes?

When it comes to type 2 diabetes, these three words are everywhere: reversal, remission and cure. There are so many people who claim to have the answer to type 2 diabetes either through a diet plan or supplement. They claim to have a cure or that they can reverse your type 2. The argument that ensues takes offense at the idea that type 2 can be cured or reversed or even put into remission. I think that the evolution around these arguments stems from the irritation we feel when people tell us, “All you have to do is this…and you’re cured.” Sometimes, we get hypersensitive, and I’m as much to blame as anyone else. So let’s take a look at these three words. Here are the definitions taken from a medical dictionary: Reversal: a change to an opposite condition, direction, or position.Remission: a temporary or permanent decrease or subsidence of manifestations of a disease. Cure: a restoration of health; recovery from disease. Let’s say I’m someone who has type 2 diabetes (Hey! I DO have type 2 diabetes! Not much of a stretch, eh?) and I find a food plan that I think will work for me and I try it. I work hard at lowering my bg numbers. I exercise. I kick diabete’s butt. Continue reading >>

    I heard one cannot reverse diabietes. But it's a bit confusing to me. If I control my diet and my blood sugar level is back in the normal range, does that mean I still have diabetes? In what way is diabetes not reversible? Thanks!

    Yes, you still have diabetes even if your blood sugar is back in the normal range. The genetic issue associated with type 2 diabetes is still there. I hope that some day that there will be a cure for all forms of diabetes.

    I think using the term "reverse" can be confusing. Some people take it to mean that they are no longer a diabetic. I prefer the term "control". If I returned to the same diet and low exercise lifestyle I had before, those BG numbers would definitely rise. By maintaining what I am doing now I'm able to keep my BG down.
