What the health experts say: According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes can only be managed through interventions like blood glucose control, healthy eating, and an active lifestyle. There are also medicines like insulin, injectables, and oral medications that are meant to help the body manage blood sugar. However, these medicines do not cure diabetes.
Although there’s no cure for diabetes, it can go into remission through managing blood glucose control and doing treatments. Health website Medical News Today said that remission means that the body does not show signs of diabetes but is still technically present.
Can diabetes be prevented? According to the WHO, type 2 diabetes can be prevented through an active lifestyle, a healthy diet, avoiding smoking, and controlling blood pressure and lipids. However, type 1 diabetes cannot currently be prevented.
