From Hyderabad, Ap, India:

A five year old boy is suffering from type 1 diabetes. Is this diabetes curable? Are there any methods to cure it?


At the present time, there is no 'cure' for type 1 diabetes. There continues to be considerable progress in developing new insulins, new ways of giving insulin and new methods of measuring blood sugar, all of which are making it easier to keep blood sugars reasonably close to normal which is the key to avoiding problems later in life.
