Q. Is Diabetes type 2 a chronic disease? I have been diagnosed with Diabetes; does this mean I will always have it from now on?

A. I was a type 2 diabetic for 15 years. I had a gastric bypass, lost a ton of weight and no longer test as a diabetic. But, my doctors say "once a diabetic, always a diabetic." So the tendency is still there and must be addressed always. My problem is not evident but now I have kidney disease and it is attributed to diabetes with complications. Eat right, get exercise and lose weight. I hope you educe your numbers so you won't risk the complications. This is your best goal for now. Diabetes is being constantly researched, so the future looks bright and maybe a cure is on the horizon! Blessings!
