Can Diabetes Be Reversed?
This is a question we often come across. It is important to remember that every body is different so there is no generic answer however here is some information that may help when we ask the question "Can diabetes be reversed"?
In some cases, yes. Type 2 diabetes can often be managed and even reversed through lifestyle changes, such as adopting a healthy diet, increasing physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight.
However, once a person has developed type 1 diabetes, it cannot be reversed, and they will need to manage it through insulin therapy and other treatments for the rest of their life. Additionally, in some cases of type 2 diabetes, even with lifestyle changes, the condition may progress to the point where insulin or other medications are required to manage blood sugar levels.
In some cases, medication may still be required to manage Type 2 diabetes even after lifestyle changes have been made. It's important to work with a healthcare provider to develop an individualised plan for managing diabetes.
