Q:
Once a diabetic are you always a diabetic, or can your body start to work normally again?

A:
What you will always "have" is a tendency to develop diabetes if you don't manage yourself. There are millions of people who have pre-diabetes (fasting blood sugars 100-125). In this stage, early intervention with lifestyle changes, can help a person get into healthy control and stay there, if there are no other chronic complications. With the increasing blend of integrative/alternative/complementary medicine with traditional healthcare management, more people are seeing increased wellness without total dependence on medications.
