Hi and thanks for using the forum.

There is currently no "cure" for diabetes.  However, with proper diet, exercise and tight blood sugar control, diabetes can be managed.  Sometimes, diet, exercise and life style changes are enough to keep blood sugars in a healthy range.  Sometimes, medications are need to help keep blood sugars under control.  Your mother's doctor will go through a lot of information with you regarding your mother and her diagnosis.  Bring a pen/paper with you for the appointment so you can write down any important information that you get.  Also, there is a lot of information available to you on the internet (such as the American Diabetes Association website) that can be really helpful and informative.  Good luck to you and your mom.
