The title of that article is misleading and does not reflect the actual meaning of what was said. This is the last paragraph: "Dr. Natalia McInnes, of McMaster University, Ontario, Canada, said: “The research might shift the paradigm of treating diabetes from simply controlling glucose to an approach where we induce remission and then monitor patients for any signs of relapse.”
And the article did not say 100% curable. It said 40% of the participants brought their blood sugar down to normal levels with diet and exercise.
They can induce remission by diet and exercise but have to monitor the patients for signs of relapse. This means it's not cured
Over ten years ago when I was diagnosed, I did control my type 2 diabetes with diet and exercise: a very strict NO carb diet and 20 minutes of cardio everyday. When I couldn't continue the daily cardio and slipped in some of the meals, my blood sugar rose. So, in the beginning, you could say I was in remission and then I relapsed. Now I take two metformin a day (1,000 total) and am getting back into regular exercise.
By the very definition of remission
, you should understand it may be temporary. From the Oxford Dictionary online: A temporary diminution of the severity of disease or pain.
I don't want to discourage you on your work to get your blood sugar lower to normal levels! You can do that with diet and exercise. But if you're really a type 2, you'll always have elevated blood sugar depending on what you eat. You may also be insulin resistant. I am. Probably most type 2s are. We still produce insulin but our bodies don't use the insulin effectively and the blood sugar stays elevated.
I wish you good luck in lowering your blood sugar. In the meantime, please read the website whose link is in my signature!
