Now a days we are hearing a lot on reversal of diabetes. We hear stories of chronic diabetic patient who were insulin dependant for many years getting free of diabetic medicine in a year's time and also of people who have landed up in ICU's after starting the programme. Can these stories be believed and weather reversal is really possible . Being a diabetic since the last 2 years would like to get a clarity from an expert like you.

Ans: Diabetes remission is a better term than reversal. Patient selection is important and it may not be possible in all. Diet and lifestyle changes are the key, with weight reduction if required. Need guidance with a team of a Doctor and a Registered Dietitan. Initially some medicines may also help with weight and then gradually tapered. Even after remission, regular monitoring may be needed as advised.
