I have been a type II diabetic for about 10

I have been a type II diabetic for about 10 years. I also have had CABG, and one stent, plus am now being treated for cirrhosis of the liver (NARFLD). I have a history of 2 attacks of acute pancreatitis requiring hospitalization and IV antibiotic treatments. I've taken Metformin then Glipizide for years, but about 6 months ago my glucose stays above 200 daily. My doctor has me taking Tradgenta and also Trulicity. My glucose stays high 24/7. The lowest it has been is 155. Should these current meds control my glucose better? 6 months ago my A1c was 5.8, now it is 9.2.

For the last few days, I have been very lethargic, and extremely thirsty. I am a runner and eat fairly healthy meals with minimal sugary foods; my maternal grandfather developed type II diabetes late in life due to poor health habits. I am 5 1 125lbs, 36yo mother of 1. my son was over 10 lbs when he was born. Do I need to be worried about having developed diabetes?

is diabetes type II curable with out medicine? Is it self curing? I know a friend who is diabetic for the last 10 years. he used to take metformin, glyclazide etc. but the blood glucose level was increasing after a short period of decrease. he used to increase the dosage ( certainly as per the advice of physicians), after a small duration again blood glucose was increasing. The FBS boosted to 400. At that time he stopped all medicines. again the FBS increased. when it has reached 455, it stopped going up and slowly it started coming down. now after 1 year without medicine it has come down to 250. is there an explanation for this?
