Lifestyle...: If you have not in the last 6 months had an oral glucose tolerance test (oGTT) and a Hemoglobin A1c (Hg A1c) I recommend that you have them done. Then consider lifestyle changes, consult with a Nutritionist, and perhaps a Functional Medicine specialist. Type 2 diabetes is often a result of lifestyle and may be corrected without medication. What is your BMI, lipid panel?
