Getting your blood sugar under control quickly is very important. The
damage to your body starts well before your blood sugars are in the
diabetic range. That's why once we know you have diabetes (or even
prediabetes) it's very important to act quickly to get things under
control. Even once you start medicine, it's also very important to
continue to work on your weight and exercise. It's wonderful that you're
focused on that! Once you start medicine, it doesn't mean you have to
be on it forever. Most people with diabetes can actually go off medicine
if they get their weight down enough and make the right lifestyle
changes. I would encourage you to discuss this issue further with your
doctor as only he knows your health as well as you do. But it is
important to get your blood sugar under control as quickly as possible
and your best bet is probably to take the medicine as your doctor
suggests, remembering it can be just temporary.
