    Without know anything about you.  Many people with type 2 many times have weight issues, and can control blood sugar level through weight control.  This is one of the the reasons younger children are dealing with type 2 diabetes.  Type 2 is actually more common in adults that age from 40 to 60 years of age.  Diabetes can't be cured but is controllable.

    there is no cure for it at the moment--you can reverse the damage that can be done and live without high sugar if you can manage to lower your bg by eating few carbs and exercising. depending how bad your diabetes is-you might be able to do it without medication,

    Some people may talk about "reversing" type 2.  But - there IS NO CURE.

    Once you have a problem that has caused you to become a type 2 diabetic - you are always a type 2 diabetic.

    You can drop weight and it should improve.

    You can change your diet and it should improve.

    You can get more exercise and it should improve.

    You might even be able to do enough with those three things to be able to avoid actually taking medication.

    BUT - even when you think your sugar levels are good again and you have done everything right - you CAN NEVER GO BACK TO OLD HABITS.  

    If you do gain great control of your sugar levels because of the changes you make - then you have to stick with it for the rest of your life.  If you gain weight and go back to bad eating habits - the high sugar levels would come back too.  You can't "cure" the underlying issues of your body not being able to correctly process carbohydrates if you give your body too many carbohydrates.

    There is also a genetic factor and an age factor with type 2 diabetes.   In some cases, a person could be a perfect body weight - eating all the perfect foods - and getting exercise - but due to age and hereditary issues - their sugar levels are still out of control.  In this case - medication is the only option.

    NO. It is not possible to get rid of type 2 diabetes. There is NO CURE. You either manage and control it or you don't. HOW you mage and control it is discussing it with one or more doctors and a dietician.

    There are examples of people that have but your focus should be on how to maintain healthy blood sugar levels through diet first in my opinion.
