Curing Diabetes

Unfortunately, we don’t have a cure for type 1 diabetes. We’re still looking hard but at this point, we don’t have a cure. On the other hand, with type 2 diabetes we do have a cure for most people: diet and exercise. Most of the increase in the prevalence of diabetes that we’ve seen in the past few decades are directly associated with obesity. Most people with type 2 diabetes can make the disease go away or at least make it less severe if they maintain a healthy body weight.
