In brief: Carbs stored as Fats

Fats, of natural origin, are least likely to be stored as fat, protein more likely, carbs (especially simple) most rapidly converted to triglycerides & stored as fat.
Thus low fat foods promote fat accumulation, study: Big Fat Lies, McGovern's Report, Science for Smart People, http://goo.gl/XBxNBS, DietDoctor.com, Gary Taubes, Peter Attia, FatChance.html, http://goo.gl/yxoOWD & my answers.

In brief: Exercise?

The only thing you didn't mention is exercise.
That can be a vital component of good health. Please check w/your doc about your fitness to do some exercise. Simple walking can be helpful. You said no diabetes but i see metformin in your med list. Looks like your doc want to keep your blood sugar balanced. Is your diet balanced? Peace and good health.
