Is there a cure?

There isn't a cure yet. But you can be healthy even with diabetes, and you can protect yourself from further complications.

There is ongoing scientific research being conducted into cures.

Controlling your blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure and stopping smoking are all really important in keeping your diabetes well managed and leading a fit and healthy life.

Diet, physical activity and taking medications properly are important parts of living fully and healthily with diabetes.

See the treating my diabetes section for information on how to look after your diabetes and prevent any further problems from developing. The staying healthy section will provide you with information about diet, physical activity and medications to help you control your blood glucose and blood pressure and to successfully self-manage your diabetes.
