Can type 2 diabetes be cured or reversed with weight loss?

Last Updated: June 17, 2020

Type 2 diabetes is not curable and cannot be reversed with weight loss. Weight loss and regular exercise will help overweight patients with type 2 diabetes return to normal blood glucose (sugar) levels, but there is currently no cure. Fortunately, a few lifestyle changes--such as eating healthily, exercising, and possibly using medications like insulin injections--can help patients with type 2 diabetes keep their blood glucose in the normal range.
