Type 2 diabetes is a disease of the diet and will not be cured by medication. Medications can lower blood sugar but will not affect the course of the disease. Diabetes can only be cured with a change in diet. In the past, type 2 diabetes was considered a chronic progressive disease that needed more medications and higher doses of medications, including insulin, over time. The new thinking is that type 2 diabetes is a reversible disease. I spend most of the day discussing this new information with my patients.
