Without knowing anything about you and your condition it’s impossible to answer your question.

I quit taking my meds after 7 weeks. My blood sugar kept getting better and better. I found I no longer needed the meds. I believe I may never have needed them in the first place.

I made lots of changes in what and how I eat and my blood sugar slowly dropped from the 300+ range to almost normal numbers in about 7 weeks. My A1C went from 14.1 to 5.9 in about 4 months.

Quitting your meds is something you should be talking to your doctor about. Some people can’t control with meds and need insulin. If you think this is your situation talk with your doctor or get another opinion or make an appointment with a Diabetes specialist.

Welcome to DC, water front!

It depends on if you are doing something, like diet and exercise, to control your diabetes, and whether or not your diabetes ("DM") is one which can be controlled that way.

If it is not something which can be controlled by diet and excersise, then you would be an UNCONTROLLED diabetic, subject to any of the nasty and painful complications an uncontrolled diabetic may have.

NOT RECOMMENDED! Speak with your Dr about this.

If you want help trying to control your DM, speak with your diabetes care team, and also ask questions here on DC.

Blessings to you and yours

James

Depends on what the pills are. Probably your blood sugar will be too high and cause damage you your body. Possibly, depending on your treatment, your blood sugar will get so high you go into a coma or possibly die. That's a slim chance, but it's possible.
