    Once you have Type 2 diabetes, is it true that it can be reversed and you will no longer have...

    diabetes, and can an accident (such as, slipping and hitting your head) cause blood sugar levels to increase to 400?

    The best person to ask about Type 2 diabetes is your doctor (or the doctor of the person with diabetes). 

    It is true that a person can be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and eventually be able to manage his blood sugar levels by sticking with the proper diet for diabetics, losing weight, and eating properly from then on.

    I know two people who have done that and who were able to stop taking insulin and manage their condition just by eating properly.

    When a person's blood sugar levels are too high, though, damage can occur in a number of ways, and once some damage has occurred it cannot be reversed (so if the person diagnosed with diabetes manages to be able to later control his blood sugar levels without medication it doesn't mean he can avoid/undo any damage that already took place while his blood sugar was high.

    Infection can cause a rise in blood sugar, whether or not a person has Type 2 diabetes.  So can stress. 

    With regard to injury, I'm not knowledgeable enough to address the question of any link between head injury and elevated blood sugar.

    Here are some links related to "post traumatic hyperglycemia".  The first one suggests that there can be a connection between elevated blood sugar levels and head trauma.  It seems, however, that this may be controversial. 

    The second one is additional information:



    Even without knowledge about rises in blood sugar associated with head trauma, I do know that all incidents of hitting one's head don't result in the same degree of trauma.  Generally, and to the best of my knowledge, the measure of severity of injury to the brain is whether someone loses consciousness at all, and if he does how long he remains unconscious.  The longer someone remains unconscious, the more serious the injury.

    In other words, if a person falls, hits his head, but doesn't lose consciousness he doesn't have to worry as much about trauma as if he lost consciousness briefly; and the person who lost consciousness longer needs to be more concerned than if he was "out" for more than a brief moment or two.

    If you wanted to research what's "out there" with regard to head trauma and rises in blood sugar levels, you may want to search for a phrase like, "traumatic hyperglycemia" to start your search.

    Diabetes 2 can be healed completely on natural way (diet and natural remedies).
    An accident can cause big increase of sugar levels, because they always rise up in the stressful times.

    Some obese people's Type 2 diabetes was controlled by Gastric By-pass Surgery. After GBP, there is reduction in the size of stomach. 90% of patients with Type 2 diabetes usually have seen improvement to a normal blood sugar without medication, sometimes within days of surgery.
    Other than GBP, there is no cure for Type 2 diabetes in Allopathic system, Homeopathic or with herbs.
    However, by changing your life style, with diet and exercise Type 2 diabetes can be controlled but cannot be cured or reversed. Trauma or stress can cause our whole body function abnormally.

    Through lifestyle changes, losing weight, exercise, and eating the right foods, Type II can be managed. In some cases, Type II diabetics may be able to discontinue medications and insulin injections. However, the main point to remember is if you discontinue the lifestyle changes and go back to the old ways, the symptoms of diabetes will come right back.

    In contrast, once you have Type I diabetes, although you can improve your blood sugar levels through lifestyle changes, the symptoms usually do not go away. Whereas Type II diabetes is usually found in older, overweight patients, Type I is usually caused by an autoimmune disorder.

    Yes, you can reverse type 2 diabetes, mainly through diet and exercise.  You can achieve normal blood sugar levels by eating a low carbohydrate diet and exercising regularly.  I have type 1 diabetes and I have achieved normal average blood sugar levels.

    By eating less starchy carbohydrates and more vegetables, your body can use the insulin that you produce more effectively and you will have less insulin resistance.  Exercise will also help improve your insulin sensitivity.

    Relaxation and reducing stresses in your lifestyle are also very important.  Stress tends to increase blood sugar levels, as do illness and hormone changes, particularly for menstruating women before their period.  A great way to reduce stress is by meditating.  I really like using a meditation CD, which uses binaural beat technology to help you to meditate very deeply, as though you had been practising for years!

    Once your blood sugar is normal, eating healthily with lots of raw vegetables, nuts and seeds and avoiding toxins, processed food, etc., along with improving your emotional, mental and spiritual health, will help your body to heal itself of diabetes.

    Evendoe you can controlled diabetes with oral medication,insulin injection and applying a healthy lifestyle,saddly until now there is no cure for diabetes and so far in my knowledge i think there is now "reversed gear".

    And i dont know whether a head injury can cause your sugar too increase to 400...because the most effected vital sign if you get an accident or a head injury is your conciouness,blood pressure,heart rate and respiration not your blood sugar.

    If i'm wrong please correct me,i'll appreciate it!
