One of my frustrations with my doctor and the endocrine group I was referred to was I asked this very question more than once and never got what I considered a straight answer. My Doctor(DO) initially said "absolutely" to this question on the day I was diagnosed...but then on subsequent visits seemed to suggest I WILL have this forever. The endocrine people suggested I could "reverse" it but seemed reluctant to tell me it's something I will always have. I assume this may be them not wanting to squash hope with harsh reality but for me I'm more interested in the truth than any false hope. I expect that from my health care providers. From my readings I've come to understand basically what's been echoed here. Its about change, control and getting educated.

Oops...minor edit here:

And there's the rub - right there. People do expect the truth from their providers, and a great many people think that ONLY their medical teams speak the truth, to the point that they will strongly resist any alternative information, despite the facts that what their doctors prescribe isn't working. Medical professionals have been placed on way too high a pedestal, and patients are suffering for it. Medical professionals are also way too invested in what they've been taught as opposed to what has actually been proven, and as we've learned from the Ancel Keys travesty, it ain't always true and often never WAS true.

When my doctor told me I was T2 diabetic (7.1 A1C) I asked if I lost 100 lbs if that would "cure" me. He emphatically said, "NO!"

Later at a get-together with friends, and I mentioned I was newly diagnosed diabetic, a person came up to me and said, "I used to be diabetic, lost weight, and now I'm not anymore". Sheesh.

There is a huge number of people who think, as I did, that if we lose weight, we will cure T2 diabetes.

From what I've found after looking into this quite a bit is that I'm diabetic for some physical, metabolic problem I've developed over time, that won't go away just by losing weight. My body will be able to handle blood glucose better with less weight with what insulin I'm still producing, but it's not "cured" of diabetes.
