Subject: Response to Cindy Hello Cindy, Technically, once you are diagnosed with diabetes, you can not reverse the diagnosis. However, there is plenty that you can do to minimize complications and control diabetes. You can minimize or delay complications with good control of blood sugar. A healthy diet, regular exercise, weight loss (if needed), and medications (as advised) will help you to control blood sugar and diabetes. Good job with your weight loss. You are off to a great start! Christine Carlson, MS, RD, BC-ADM, CDE
