I know there are certain drugs than can induce type 2, steroids being a prime example. A lot of people who are on long-term steroids develop mild type 2 as evidenced by elevated blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C. I had this issue, but I stopped the steroids everything went back into the normal range. Do I still have diabetes? I don't think so, but I still try to follow the diet and exercise plan.
Also, morbidly obese people often lose the signs of diabetes if they lose into their normal weight range, but if they gain weight again, it comes right back.
I look at it as the symptoms may be reversed but maybe the condition is still there waiting to show itself again in the right circumstances.
