Today My husband got diabetes type 2, DR gives metformin, want 2 knw if he kep on diet and hard exercises for months, is possible to not hav it again?

It's possible. Technically we can't "cure" diabetes, but we can control it with strict diet (low fat, low cholesterol, upwards of 50 grams of fiber daily, small meals five or six times daily), exercise (aerobic) and weight reduction.
