    Core tip: Diabetes mellitus has been known since antiquity and despite therapeutic advances it still remains an incurable chronic disease. In our historical article, we attempt to provide the most important steps in the history of diabetes mellitus from antiquity till nowadays.

    "...an incurable chronic disease." I would challenge that statement. From what I understand and have personally experienced, Type 2 diabetes may be incurable in the sense that alcoholism is incurable — i.e., as long as alcoholics abstain from alcohol, they are healthy. As long as diabetics abstain from starch and sugars, they too are healthy. In other words, the harmful effects of diabetes can be completely reversed because it is a lifestyle disease. Change your diet and increase your physical activity and you will lead a normal, healthy life.
