There are several forms of treatment available - you can have a full life with diabetes. There is not yet a total cure as the procedures such as transplants, etc also have medications to be taken. Discuss all the different treatment options with you doctor - as several factors such as your lifestyle, eating habits, etc will determine what will be the most suitable in your specific situation.
