Like "There is no cure, BUT like Nick said YOU are the key to avoiding meds and pricks. I have T1, and my last A1c was 5.9 the doctor said if I was a T2 I would no longer need meds, unfortunately my pancreas no longer does the job of releasing insulin to my body, so I have to take care of this! With diet and exercise you can manageYOUR diabetes, that's the key it belongs to You and it is up to you what the result will be! Good luck!"
