Diabetes is a kind of disease which depends more on the patient than any other factor in successful Diabetes management. Keeping your blood sugar levels down to normal in the same range as that of people who do not have diabetes is as good as not having diabetes.
Unfortunately there is no “Absolute cure” concept in the management of diabetes. But it makes sense to live with diabetes without any medication which is essentially equivalent to CURE.
Development of type 2 Diabetes, also known as Non insulin dependent Diabetes mellitus is a gradual process. The body initially becomes unable to produce sufficient insulin and/or the body’s cells become resistant to insulin. So the patient goes from having impaired glucose tolerance (a condition where insulin is reduced but still adequate to convert food into energy) to having diabetes.
As soon as a person is diagnosed with diabetes, he may start some kind of rigorous exercise, lose some weight, cut down his carbohydrates and discover that his glucose levels drop down to normal. But this does not mean he is cured of diabetes or is out of danger from its dreaded complications. If he gains back his weight or scales back on his exercise and diet, his blood glucose shoots up. Also the pathology of reduced insulin production and insulin resistance intensifies over a period of time. This makes room not only for a worsened diabetic profile but for all those serious complications like neuropathy, nephropathy and retinopathy.
