once u are diagnosed as diabetic..there is no permanent cure for diabetes..u should restrict food intake and if ur diabtes is initial stage then it may be controlled only by diet restriction if not u should have medicines daily .

General & Family Physician Dr. JItendra Sharma's  Response
Once diagnosed with diabetes- You have it for your life. It is irreversible as lost pancreas cells cannot be got back.

You should get yourself treated as per plan.
