    Diabetes cannot be cured. It also cannot be reversed.

    But it can be strictly managed so that blood sugar is at or close to non-diabetic levels.

    Cure/reversal means that you can eat a high carb meal and 2 hours later, have normal blood sugar. This is never going to happen.

    Well-controlled diabetes means that with a strict diet, you can still maintain normal blood sugars.

    So for example:
    Scenario 1 : You eat a high carb breakfast of muesli, wholegrain toast, bananas and orange juice. Two hours later, your blood sugar is 100. You do not have diabetes.

    Scenario 2 : You eat a high carb breakfast of muesli, wholegrain toast, bananas and orange juice. Two hours later, your blood sugar is 250. You have diabetes, and that meal was too high in carb for you. If you continue eating like this, your diabetes is uncontrolled and you will suffer diabetic complications.

    Scenario 3 : You eat a low carb breakfast of scrambled eggs with grilled bacon and coffee with cream but no sugar. Two hours later, your blood sugar is 120. Your low-carb meal has not raised your blood sugar. Your diabetes is under control.

    Losing weight MIGHT help some people to better control their diabetes but it will NOT reverse diabetes. 20% of all Type 2 diabetics are of normal weight.
