    First of all you must understan that there are 2 types of diabetes.
    Type one: The body does not produce any insulin. The most hopeful cure is islet cell transplants. This is done by injecting islet cells from a cadaver into the pancreas of the individual with type 1 diabetes. The process needs cells from about 10 cadavers and now is about 70-80% effective for eliminating the need to use insulin.
    Type 2 diabetes has a few causes. The body does not produce enough insulin or the body does not use insulin effectivley. There is some medication and insulin available to control this.
    Either one of these can develop from a family history or by living a certain lifestyle. The best way to control, delay and or prevent this is from proper dietary habits. Portion control,eating healthy foods and exercise are still the best options.
