The term ‘diabetes reversal’ means that it is not a complete cure, but a change in the direction of the condition, to a clinical condition where blood glucose levels, as ascertained by a variety of tests including the hemoglobin A1C (below 6.5%), are in the normal range and do not require diabetes medications. Reversing diabetes is a term that usually refers to a significant long-term improvement in insulin sensitivity in people with type 2 diabetes. This also known as putting diabetes into remission, which is a very realistic condition to aspire to for most type 2 diabetics.
This is exactly the opposite of what was thought to be the inescapable progression of a disease that puts patients at high risk for so many complications, including cardiovascular disease, blindness, renal failure, and amputations.
Medications can make your ‘blood sugar level’ look good. However, in the background, your insulin sensitivity is worsening and you are heading for a worsening of the dreaded complications of diabetes like blindness etc.
