In type 2 Diabetes your body either resists the effects of insulin, a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells, or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels. Steady, long term weight loss is the only way to reverse this disease. You should be monitoring your glucose levels daily to avoid hypoglycemia and take the prescribed medication.

Yes, Food is part of the problem. One is clearly Diabetic and needs appropriate medication, exercise and diet to control Blood Sugar. Listening to and following the guidance of one's PCP is in one's best interest. Procrastination will only delay progress.
