what is the best way to cure diabetes?

Cure for diabetes: Unfortunately there is no "cure" for diabetes yet. We are getting better at diagnosing it as well as treating it - insulin pumps combined with real time glucose sensing has come as close to an "artificial pancreas" but there is not cure only treatments. Gene therapy holds some promise but that would be years away. Hope this helps
