Can Diabetes Be Cured Completely?

can diabetes be cured completely

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects blood sugar and can result in other problems such as heart attack and kidney disease if left untreated. Type 1 diabetes develops when the cells that produce insulin are damaged and the body can’t produce the important hormone anymore. Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, occurs when your body has a reduced sensitivity to insulin and utilizes less of the hormone than it requires.

Is diabetes curable?

Diabetes doesn’t have a cure. However, patients with type 2 diabetes can achieve remission by losing weight and exercising more.

Remission doesn’t prevent your body from redeveloping the condition in the future. Diabetes grows gradually, and in the end, the insulin underproduction or insensitivity intensifies. A patient who once relied on exercise and diet to maintain normal blood sugar levels may at one time discover that they need medication or even insulin injections to regulate their glucose.

As regards type 1 diabetes, there is no other remedy besides insulin injection that has been proven to regulate the dynamic blood sugar levels. Save for the ‘honeymoon period’ in which diabetes appears to go away for a few months after diagnosis, there is no other time when a type 2 diabetes patient will go without insulin injections.

Are there natural therapies that can cure diabetes?

Diabetes can be controlled using natural therapies combined with behavior change aimed at suppressing direct triggers of the condition such as emotional stress.

Some patients may prefer to use supplements to help them relax and calm their nerves. If you have to use synthetic anti-depressants ensure you consult your diabetes doctor as some of this formulas react badly with diabetes affecting its potency and resulting in complications.
