Yes and no: It depends mainly on what type of diabetes.Type 1 dm needs insulin.Type 2 can sometimes be treated way at first, and can improve/"reverse".An A1c level helps see how long and how bad the dm has been.The higher it is the more likely meds need to be a part of treatment.But, for anyone with it should pay close attention to what they eat and doing some exercise.It takes real commitment but can pay off.
