I was diagnosed as being "officially diabetic" in March 2014. My doctor put me on Metformin and just told me to diet and get "more" exercise. I'm confused. Is it normal to not require monitoring of blood sugar or not recommend seeing a dietitian? This has me a little nervous that I'm going to do something wrong...I've already had a flagged 43.9 microalbumin/creatinine result on my 3-month follow up. (all other labs per well within normal range again)
