What Is The Cure For Type 2 Diabetes – Facts You Need To Know!

One of the main questions people ask me is What Is The Cure For Type 2 Diabetes?

So Here Is My Answer

Technically speaking there is not a cure at present for any form of diabetes, BUT you can put type 2 diabetes into remission meaning you will still have type 2 diabetes but will NOT need any medications and will NOT suffer from any complications of type 2 diabetes in the future (if you keep diabetes in remission).

What Causes Type 2 Diabetes

Firstly to get your type 2 diabetes into remission, we must understand what causes type 2 diabetes and understand that not all fat people get type 2 diabetes and not all type 2 diabetics are fat. So…what actually causes type 2 diabetes then.

The answer is that the most common cause of type 2 diabetes is Insulin Resistance, this means your body can not use the insulin that is produced by your pancreas effectively to remove sugar from your blood. This causes your pancreas to make even more insulin which then causes type 2 diabetes. Some people with type 2 don’t produce enough insulin, that is due to a genetic abnormality

What Causes Insulin Resistance

This is a list of the main causes of insulin resistance, you can read more to understand what they mean here Causes Of Insulin Resistance. But please come back here to learn how to put your type 2 into remission

  • Molecular Mechanism
  • Diet
  • Lack of physical activity
  • HIV drugs
  • Cellular levels
  • Disease
  • Hepatitis C
  • Genetics (NAT2 Gene)
  • Pregnancy

Who Is At Risk of Becoming Insulin Resistance

An individual is more likely to have or develop insulin resistance if he or she is

  • over 40 years of age
  • Latino, African or Asian ancestry
  • Has a BMI of more than 25
  • Has a waist larger than 40 inches for a man 35 inches for a woman
  • Family members with type 2 diabetes
  • High Blood pressure
  • Low HDL Cholesterol
  • Has 3 or more components of the Metabolic Syndrome
  • Has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrom


Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Syndrome are also linked with cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, cervix, pancreas, uterus and prostate. This is because high insulin in the blood fuels the growth of tumors and stops the body,s ability to protect itself. Research has also found that high insulin levels also cause memory function problems like Alzheimer.s disease.

How To Put Your Type 2 Into Remission

New research carried out by Diabetes Remission Clinical Trial which was partly funded by the National Health Service of England has proved that patients with type 2 diabetes have a very high success rate of reversing their diabetes after following a Very Low-Calorie Diet (VLCD) for 3 months.

A Very Low-Calorie Diet is hard to follow for some people, it can be a minefield finding the correct foods to eat and making sure you’re getting all the right nutrients that your body needs. We recommend that people with type 2 diabetes eat a healthy balanced diet containing lots of fruits, whole grains, vegetables, pulses, seafood, and nuts. And to eat less red meat and processed meat, sugary foods and drinks, and refined grains like white bread.

You can find a range of books and ideas online showing the ingredients you should be using to make very low calorie nutritional healthy meals, but like I mentioned earlier this can be a minefield. See Some Ideas Here

Alternatively, you can start the exact same diet they used for the research. It was supplied by a company called Exante.

There are a number of reasons why Exante’s meal replacement range was used in the experiment. All of there meal replacement shakes, meals, bars, soups, and desserts are: High In Protein, A Complete Meal Replacement, High In Fibre and Contain 27 Vitamins and Minerals.

    Thanks for your very informative post Garry. My father has recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes – he is in his early 70s and now on medication and needs to check his levels every day. I have been talking to him about diet and whilst he is interested in looking at other ways to control his diabetes, and he is learning what the triggers are, he’s not very informed about the right nutrition. I had a look at your link to Exante and it does sound promising and a relatively easy program to follow – 800 calories is a day is a pretty low intake but I might be able to get him to try this! I was wondering, if we assume that he did go into remission after 12 weeks, could he then resume eating a “normal” amount of calories, albeit with some dietary changes? Many thanks, Lindsay

      Hi Lindsay,
      I am glad you found this article useful, The results from the trials show that when they return to a normal diet after the 12 week period diabetes stays in remission in a high percentage of people. You can read this blog here about returning back to a normal healthy diet

  2. Hi Garry, Thank you so much for this information. A very dear friend of mine has type 2 diabetes and I want him to be around for many years to come so I am reading up on all the information I can. I want to help him but not be a nag.
