In brief: Exercise & diet

Exercise and diet is the first step to treatment of diabetes.
Often weight loss occurs and can also help. Speak with primary doctor to make sure it's safe and get specific exercise and diet prescriptions.

In brief: Weight loss, diet

Weight loss, exercise, and changing your diet can help normalize your blood glucose.
It also depends how far from normal you are and whether its realistic to do this with diet, exercise, and weight loss alone. See your doctor for medications to manage your diabetes.

It's not something I would try and hide from them just as I haven't recommended that other patient hide their asthma in order to get into the military.
