Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - Geckle Diabetes and Nutrition Center
Can diabetes be cured?
It cannot be cured but it can be controlled with proper diet, exercise and, in some cases, with addition of medication.
Diabetes runs in my family. Does this increase my risk of developing diabetes?Yes. Type 2 is usually hereditary. Your best line of defense is to take care of yourself before it develops.
Can Type 2 develop into Type 1 diabetes?No.
How do I know if my insurance covers this type of education?Call your insurance company and ask if it covers Outpatient Diabetes Education Services with a Nurse or Dietitian, (if you have diabetes) or if not, ask if they cover Outpatient Nutritional Education, for your specific medical condition.
