Can Type 2 Diabetes Be Cured or Reversed?

by | Jul 16, 2018

I find the English language to be very interesting…and confusing at times! Just last week someone asked on FB if Type 2 Diabetes can be reversed? To me, the answer is ‘of course it can!’

As I read through the thread it seemed that there was sensitivity to the word ‘reversed’ and ‘cured’ (another word brought up in the conversation). One person wanted to know what defined reversed, another said there is no way it can be cured or reversed. It’s so interesting how when reading a thread, you can get so personally involved and almost belligerent, just from a benign question!

To tell you the truth, it was starting to make me anxious! They were focusing on these 2 words instead of the root issue at hand. I had to stop reading the thread! But I digress…

I decided to look up the words.

Miriam Webster’s medical definition of reverse is:

  • medical Definition of reversereversed; reversing. : to change drastically or completely the course or effect of: as. a : to initiate recovery from. reverse a disease

Miriam Webster’s medical definition of cure is:

  •  recovery from a disease. his cure was complete ; also : remission of signs or symptoms of a disease especially during a prolonged period of observation.

According to the CDC, 1% of the population had diagnosed diabetes in 1958.

In 2015, around 9.4 percent of the population in the U.S. had diabetes, including 30.2 million adults aged 18 years and over. Nearly a quarter of those with the condition do not know they have it.

Wow! Nearly a quarter don’t know they have it? That’s scary. But let’s get to the root of the issue. We all have triggers in our bodies that lay dormant. Some are genetic and some are environmental (including food, chemicals in cleaning products and skin care products).

Can you do something about it?


First, you should know that Diabetes does not discriminate! The reason many people don’t know they have it is because they are in great shape, right body weight and mass, and think they eat well…until they go for their annual check and are told they have high blood sugar and need to go on Metformin.

What? That’s because we have been conditioned to believe that whole grains and fruits are healthy. Yeah, we’re getting savvy about refined flour and sugar, but whole grains and fruit?

The get broken down into sugar. Yup.


Now, I’m not talking about ALL fruits but most.

What can you do NOW?

You can make such simple shifts to your meals by cutting out fruits with high sugars and eating berries and apples, but limiting your consumption.

  1. Add more fiber! Dark green leafy vegetables, psyliium husk, etc. You should be getting approximately 30-35 grams of fiber a day! Fiber slows down the release of insulin and helps balance your blood sugar.
  2. Add more healthy fats (nuts and seeds, avocados, grass fed butter of ghee, olive oil, coconut oil)
  3. Eat a healthy lean protein (chicken, eggs, grass fed beef, wild salmon, nuts and seeds)
  4. Add more magnesium (green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, or a supplement)
  5. Combine one of each of these in your meals and you will be on your way!

There’s more but this is a great start!

You can SO do this!

Basically the challenge was to buy their product, drink it 3x a day, eat one meal of salad and a protein, and two snacks: a piece of fruit with a tablespoon of nut butter for one snack, and some sort of fat and protein combo (ie. beef jerky, handful of nuts or avocado) for the other snack. Oh, and to drink one gallon of water a day.
