No: Closer and closer, but not definitively cured as yet. Cell transplants most promising, + stem cell work, but not as yet ready for prime time. Dr. A. Vinick (and many other researcher-endocrinologists) committed to cure w/in their careers.

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.
