I am a diabetic, how to control ? Is there any exercise ?

I am a diabetic, what can I do to help control my blood sugar because I would like to get off medication.? My average blood sugar over the last month has been 164. I did lose 6 lbs in the last month. I also have high blood pressure . I have type 2 diabetes and was diagnosed a month ago. I figured my average by adding all my blood sugar readings together and dividing by the number of bs I had. I am not looking to just stop taking my medication I want to know how to control it well enough that I don t have to take the medication. I know exercise is a good thing for me to do, but I am not sure what kinds of exercises I should do. Are there any really good exercises? Any other helpful suggestions would be appreciated.

You need to first control your blood sugar in perfect levels with the medications. Once you acheive that, may be then yo can think of slowly reducing the doses of medications in accordance with your sugar levels and doctor's advise and then if fine, stop them. But it is a slow process taking a looooong time. Maintain an healthy diet and fitness program. Contact a dietician who will suggest you the recommended diet and exercise pattern.
