In brief: Probably
If you pay attention to a good diet with carb restriction, lose weight and have a regular exercise routine the diabetes will be controlled to the point that the sugars would be normal.
This means that the condition is controlled, but can become obvious and out of control if all the above is not followed on a consistent basis.

In brief: DIABETES REVERSIBLE?
Diabetese is not reversible once you are diagnosed with it.
But mild case of diabetes can be controlled with lifestyle modifications, like weight loss, proper diet low on sugars and carbohydrates, and exercise.But remember diabetes is progressive disease and sooner or later you may need meds or insulin.But with diet exercise and weight loss you can postpone it.Very obese baraitri surgery is an option.

In brief: Sometimes
Type 2 Diabetes can be reversed in patients that are obese and in some patients that are overweight.
Significant weight loss can return blood sugars to normal in many patients. A diet that eliminates refined carbohydrates and processed foods, and emphasizes fresh produce, fish, poultry and small amounts of lean meat and low fat dairy products can return blood glucose to normal.
