I am losing weight now also because I habe been able to stop using insulin. Just this week I have lost 6 pounds. Insulin had put so much weight on now I am excited about losing it. That also helps in making me make even smarter food choices. Good luck to you.

Diet and exercise are two of the biggest factors in blood sugar control, far more than insulin or drugs. It's not uncommon for a type 2 to have a reduction in medication after they make diet and exercise changes. However, diabetes is progressive so it maybe down the road you have to increase through no fault of your own.
