I have been quite surprised to see many doctors, authors, journalists and others refer to those diabetics who have managed to control their BG levels as having REVERSED their diabetes. Now, I would love to hear from anyone with .more knowledge than me, but I understood that if you were diagnosed with diabetes, that was it for life. You could go into remission, but you could not reverse it. We will always have the ability to send our BGs through the roof if we start eating too many carbs again, unlike a non-diabetic. So we will always be diabetics, but hopefully in permanent remission!
