In brief: Yes

Type 2 diabetes is strongly related to lifestyle.
Ob esity is the number one cause of diabetes. People with type 2 who get on a reduced calorie, low carbohydrate diet, lose weight and excercise regularly can often reverse their diabetes.

There is abundant evidence that early, mild type 2 diabetes is reversible with attention to a diet with carbohydrate restriction, weight loss and regular exercise.

In brief: Yes.

The best results occur with making sure you eat no wheat, sugar, potato, fruit juice, soda, artificial sweeteners, or margarine/hydrogenated fat.
You will need to read the ingredients part of every food label to make sure. Sugar also looks like starch, fructose, corn syrup, agave, and honey. Check out a book on getting rid of diabetes by Dr. Mark Hyman.
