Calling weight loss a cure[edit]

This is accurate "Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease, for which there is no known cure except in very specific situations."

The ref does not call it a cure just a remission.[1] And this is only for type 2 DM. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 01:06, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

Yes but as discussed here, can we use the same term of 'remission' in the article? Thank you. -- Abhijeet Safai (talk) 10:54, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Change the map of Diabetic Incidence Worldwide (2000) in the epidemiology section to a more updated version if diabetic prevalence. The reason this needs to be changed is the current maps data is incorrect and displays false information, as well as it is outdated.

This map shows the Global Prevalence of Diabetes from 2014 utilizing data from 195 countries. The current average rate of global diabetic prevalence is 9.2% or 92 out of every 1000 people.
