The term "cure" means that, aftermedical treatment, the patient nolonger has that particular conditionanymore.

Some diseases can be cured. Others,like hepatitis B, have no cure. Theperson will always have the condition,but medical treatments can help tomanage the disease.

Medical professionals use medicine,therapy, surgery, and other treatmentsto help lessen the symptoms andeffects of a disease. Sometimes thesetreatments are cures - in other words,they get rid of the disease. Forexample, doctors treat athlete's footusing antifungal creams, powders, orsprays that kill the fungus causing thedisease.

When a disease can't be cured, doctorsoften use treatments to help control it.For example, one type of diabeteshappens when the pancreas does notmake enough insulin to get glucoseinto cells where it's needed. Doctorstreat people with diabetes using insulininjections and other methods so theycan continue to live normal lives. Butright now there's no cure for diabetes.So some people need insulintreatments for the rest of their lives.

The good news is that researchers areconstantly coming up with advances inmedicine. So it's possible that adisease that can be treated but notcured today may be cured in the future.
