I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and my mother was Type 2 Insulin Dependent. My doctor was not very helpful in making suggestions about the diagnosis and what I needed. I am now testing only once per day and the ratings stay between 100 and 140 unless I have eaten something especially sweet which I rarely do. I am only taking one oral medication and the doctor hasn't mentioned anything else I need. My question is if I lose weight and/or cut all or most of the sugar out of my diet (start eating right), is there a chance that the diabetes will go away or resolve on it's own or is this diagnosis for the rest of my life? I would really appreciate any thoughts.
