Getting as Close As Possible to a Cure for Diabetes

Do you know someone who lives with diabetes? It can be a challenging condition to manage, but treatments available can help get as close to a cure as possible. Diabetes affects an estimated 30.3 million people in the U.S. alone – 1 in 10 Americans.

There are four main types of diabetes, including Type 1 and Type 2, but they all end up with the same result – high blood glucose levels.

Type 1 diabetes (where your pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin) affects fewer than 5% of people with diabetes and is usually diagnosed in childhood or teenage years.

Type 2 diabetes is much more common, affecting about 95% of all people with diabetes, and can be prevented with healthy lifestyle changes.

Some treatments come as close as possible to a cure – meds for Type 1 diabetes that mimic the actions of the pancreas and lifestyle changes for Type 2 diabetes that can reverse or lower the need for medication. Researchers are also working on treatments in experimental phases, so there could be a cure for diabetes in the future.

If you or someone you know has diabetes, you know firsthand that it can be tough to manage. But with the right treatments, you can come close to a cure.
