Is there a cure for Type 2 diabetes?

Who wouldn’t love a cure for Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 Diabetes is a challenging health condition and creates problems within the body. Problems like improper use of blood sugars.

Instead of getting into the cells and being used for energy, the high blood sugar gets stored as fat. It also stays in the bloodstream and tests as high blood sugar.

High blood sugar leads to all kinds of problems.

Problems such as:

  • Blood vessel damage 
  • Heart Damage
  • Kidneys damage
  • Eye damage
  • and more

No one wants their body to take this kind of damage.

So why isn’t there a cure for Type 2 Diabetes?

There is no cure for Type 2 Diabetes.

The damage is done.

Beta Cells

Once you have Type 2 Diabetes your beta calls have already taken damage. They won’t perform correctly ever again.

Beta cells are located in the pancreas and they create insulin. In people with Type 2 Diabetes, these cells work harder and harder until they can’t keep up. This leads to their malfunction.

The genetic factors are also permanent.

We inherited the gene for Type 2 from our parents. There is no way to remove the tendency for Type 2 Diabetes from these genes.

We can take a good hard look at our family for inspiration. What does it look like when the people who share our genetics do nothing to improve their health?

Is that what we want for ourselves?!?

Remission is possible with Type 2 diabetes. We can have blood glucose levels that remain in the healthy range. The goal is to keep our blood sugars in range long term. This is remission.

How can we get into remission?


Research1 shows by doing a ketogenic diet, people with Type 2 Diabetes can lose weight.

They were also able to regulate their high blood sugar.

Ketogenic eating can lead to the remission of Type 2 Diabetes. In this study, people needed less medication after following the Keto diet for one year. Their A1c also came into the normal range.

How do I start a Ketogenic Diet?

A ketogenic diet causes our body to use fat as fuel. This puts us into a state of ketosis.

Ketosis is when your body doesn’t get enough fuel from carbohydrates and burns fat for fuel.

It turns the fat into ketones. Ketones then become the fuel we need for energy.

Ketosis is particularly good at burning belly fat. Belly fat is associated with Type 2 Diabetes.

Intermittent Fasting

You’ve likely heard of Intermittent Fasting(IF) as a fad diet.

Research has shown that IF done with intention can reduce symptoms2 for Type 2 diabetics. It can also correct some of the underlying issues. Intermittent fasting is going without food or beverages with calories for a period of time.

Intermittent fasting can benefit Type 3 diabetics in these ways:

  • Decrease inflammation
  • Improve cholesterol
  • Improve insulin sensitivity
  • Encourage weight loss
  • Improve cardiovascular health

How Do I Start Intermittent Fasting?

Addressing the issues on the above list is critical to our health with Type 2 Diabetes.

The first step is to cut sugar and carbohydrates out of your diet. This prevents blood sugar spikes that cause damage to our organs and tissues.

While there is no cure for Type 2 Diabetes, every small step you take is a step closer to remission.
