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

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.
