When I was first diagnosed, my doctor told me that I 'might' be able to come off the medicine, if I lose the weight and stick to the diet/exercise, which I have. i take only 500 mgs of metformin daily. So I am curious as to how many of you have been able to do this? also, if you ever came off meds.. how long have you been off or, when did you have to get back on something and why? was it because you no longer followed diet and exercise and were careful enough, or were you but you still had to take oral medication and/or insulin anyway later on? See, I am thinking that if I do come off, eventually I am certain I will have to go back on it at some point though no professional has told me that yet.
