Diabetes Remission

What does it mean for type 2 diabetes to be in remission?

Remission means having an A1c of 6.5% or lower without using diabetes medicine for at least 3 months. Some people who don't need diabetes medicine go into remission with weight loss, diabetes-focused healthy eating, and exercise. Their bodies are still able to make and use insulin.
