I am actually a bit sad to see that a well-known medical school would insinuate that such a thing were possible.

Weight going down, A1c & BG already down, cholesterol down, insulin down - all of these make good news. Congratulations. If you can "tolerate" a higher amount of carbs, then that is also good for you.

But as has been pointed out, with a registered A1c of 7.7, your metabolic challenge is very real. And it is a one way street. Once you're in, you're in. The good news is, that it is controllable, and you are doing it very well. On another site, I learnt that Diabetes is like having a cobra in your living room. Keep looking at it, and you can be safe. Lose sight, and anything can happen.

I didn't see where the article says cure. It speaks of remission.

Yes I'm going to continue with my lifestyle changes and hope my a1c continues to stay in the normal range. I know this is not enough for some but right now it's working for me.

I was referring to the title of the article. It insinuates that diabetes has a cure, which is false.

Yes the title says cure it, can you reverse it. But the article doesn't talk about how to cure diabetes it talks about remission of diabetes.

That was my point ... the title doesn't say 'reverse.' It says cure. I was simply stating that as a well-known and renowned medical center, they should choose their wording more carefully so that it's not misleading.

Forgive me if this post isn't worded correctly or making sense. It's been a terribly long day.

Ok I took the title as saying is there a cure with a question mark at the end. Like they were asking then they went into talking about remission. Not that they are advocating a cure. Better working may have been better but I'm no author. Lol
