Can Prediabetes Be Cured?

The best way to fight prediabetes and get your blood sugar back in the normal range is with a coordinated plan of healthy nutrition, increased physical activity and lifestyle coping strategies that support modest weight loss if you are overweight. (Modest weight loss is defined as losing 5-10% of body weight.) Research shows that following such a plan not only reduces diabetes risk, but does it better than using medication. Improvements in glucose levels may be seen in as little as three months. If you have prediabetes, you need to start making lifestyle changes quickly. There's a window of only about three to six years in which you can turn around elevated glucose levels. If your health care provider informs you that you have prediabetes, do not give up!

    Can diabetes or prediabetes be cured? Not controlled, but cured?

    Can type 2 diabetes or pre diabetes be cured? Anyone have experience with this?
    Most of the information I've been finding on this is just about it being reversed.
    I would like to know if it can be cured. As in, can someone eventually eat a piece of birthday cake and not get a spike ?

    We have been asked this 100s of times, some say yes and some say no. Definition of cured means you can eat anything and have blood sugar under 100 and a lot depends on what made or caused the numbers to rise in the first place. Some lose weight and control it, can they eat tons of garbage and lets say cake and or ice cream daily maybe never. If it could be cured this site would not be here, but for many it can be controlled with diet, exercise and weight loss that never did a thing for me but hey were all very different.

My personal opinion is that it depends on how much damage has been done to the pancreas. But there have been people on this forum who were diagnosed and now can eat a high carb meal like a piece of cake and not spike. But obviously if they go back to their old ways the diabetes will eventually come back.
