Can you reverse diabetes?

I have type 2 diabetes and I was told that it was possible to reverse it.

    Hi @CeciliaT,

    You may find this post helpful as well:

    There is currently no cure for type 2 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes itself cannot be reversed; however, there are many ways of treating and managing one’s type 2 diabetes.

    Thinking of you; hope this helps and thanks for being a part of the community!

    Hi CeciliaT, that is an excellent question, one frequently asked. The short answer is a long one though.

    Pre-diabetics have been know to sometimes bring their A1C back down to non-diabetic numbers; my dad being one, who changed is diet and lifestyle immediately after told he was borderline.

    As for those with diabetes, it is possible to bring your number down to a point where you are extremely well managed in your diabetes. However, there is no cure or way of reversing diabetes that has been clinically affirmed.

    I hope this answer helps you, please reach out if you have other questions.
