This is an excellent question.  There are studies that show that Type 2 Diabetes is reversible in people for up to 10 years after diagnosis.  


This is obviously only going to be the case if a patient undergoes changes that will lead to this outcome.  This would include losing weight and maintaining an appropriate BMI, eating a healthy diet that is friendly to diabetes recovery, and exercise.  Losing weight and keeping off seems to be a signficant factor for this reversal to happen.  

Have your numbers fallen in the area of type 2 Diabetes?
