Metformin: After diet and exercise, the most advised medication for treating type 2 diabetes is metformin. This works to treat the underlying problem of Insulin resistance, and promotes some weight loss. If metformin alone does not work well enough, there are many other meds that can be added, depending on factors such as obesity, lipid profiles, cardiac status, cost considerations.
