In brief: No

It is possible to come off of Insulin sometimes, but that may be temporary.

In brief: Good question...

Many experts like using the term "remission" rather than cure especially when obese diabetic patients have bariatric surgery and come off their meds, but in an actual pancreas transplant that may be different.
