Diabetes mellitus is a chronic, progressive disease with potentially serious consequences. Treatment for type 2diabetes often begins lifestyle modification with oral agents and ultimately requires insulin therapy. As the disease progresses, drug therapies are often intensified and rarely reduced to control glycemia. The incidence rates of remission and duration for remission is awfully variable. A range of factors seem to influence the remission rates and duration. However, a few studies have demonstrated that drug-free glycemic control can be achieved in type 2 diabetes.
Key words: Type 2 diabetes mellitus; honeymoon period, spontaneous complete remission, partial remission and bariatric surgery.
