What type?: Type II diabetes is often due to obesity. Losing weight can "cure" this type of diabetes, often. Type I diabetes, is not "curable." There are other causes of elevated blood sugars, too, that can be treated and then blood sugar levels may return to normal. See your doc for an explanation in your case.

Diabetes treatment: Patarticipate in a comprehensive diabetes self-management education program, which includes instruction on nutrition, physical activity, optimizing metabolic control, and preventing complications. Weight reduction through diet, exercise, and behavioral modification can all be used to improve glycemic control, although the majority of patients with diabetes will require medication. There's no cure

Low carbohydrate: The best and the easiest way to cure diabetes is by completely stopping high carb foods (grains, lentils, potatoes based items). Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance. Low carb food items such as meats, non starchy vegetables, avocados, some saturated fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil), olive oil are very effective in normalizing blood sugars and may avoid the need for meds.

Provided original answer
A lot of new research shows that people can cure/revert diabetes and restore their health to normal state by consuming healthy foods. Blood sugars start going down with 3-4 days of diligently consuming good food.
