Living with diabetes
If tests indicate you have either pre-diabetes or diabetes of either type, consult with medical professionals to make a treatment plan appropriate for you, as specific care varies with your specific condition. Though type 1 diabetes is a non-curable disease (apart from transplant) that requires insulin in 100% of cases, type 2 diabetes may be much more easily treated and controlled with oral drugs and lifestyle changes. Only about 25% of type 2 diabetic patients will require insulin.
