I was only diagnosed as a T2 about 2 1/2 months ago but the doctor said he suspected I was a long term diabetic. At my doctor's appointment last month, he said the goal is to get me off my meds. I exercise regularly and watch my diet carefully. I seem to have my daily BG under control, but I won't have another A1C test until the middle of February. I forgot to take my morning metformin one day last week and as a result had high BG readings all day. To me, that shows that I need the meds to help control my BG, even though I am exercising and dieting. Can anyone explain to me how i will be able to go off my medicine using only exercise and diet to control my diabetes?
