I personally doubt diabetes is "cured". I think if a true diabetic achieved "normal" levels then went back to eating sugar like non-diabetics can, the disease would be back.
I have diabetes 2. I could have have died, but didn't
from a heart attack in January. but my blood sugar levels were lower than ever before, A1c test was 5.5 instead of 7.5 a couple of years ago. I credit that to having cut out oils. I have never taken medicine for diabetes. if I do die of a heart attack that's okay and I hope it's quick! until then I believe I can control the diabetes. now the recommendation has shifted from "tight control" as that, with medication, sometimes proved fatal.
maybe the diabetes post about carbs was removed? I had an answer to it so here it is.
just for this post I did a test. after breakfast (of 50 carbs but I don't usually count) my one hour glucose test was 173. Two hour test was 113. that may be high for those without diabetes but is within the range for those of us with diabetes 2. My breakfast was oatmeal (1/3 cup dry of quick oats cooked with water), 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/4 cup low-fat soy, stevia to sweeten. 1 slice of whole wheat bread (which had .5 grams oil) and 1/2 banana.http://www.joslin.org/info/Goals-for-Bl ... ntrol.htmlhttp://www.januvia.com/sitagliptin/janu ... c_id=JA80G
"For people without diabetes, according to experts, blood sugar levels should be:
Between 70 and 120 mg/ dL
For people with type 2 diabetes:
Fasting (not eating for a period of time): up to 130 mg/dL
After meals: less than 180 mg/dL"
