Can I Stop My Diabetes Medications?

I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I am taking 10 mg of glipizide and 500 mg of metformin twice a day. My A1C was 12.5, but I have been feeling better, and I even stopped taking the glipizide every morning. My blood glucose average is now 170. Is that good, or should I continue to take my glipizide every morning? Continue reading >>

    Mine was 9.4, and I regularly had 300 blood sugars, some as high as 600. I was 361 lbs.
    I started low carb 3 and a half years ago, and have been off all diabetes meds for 28 months now. My last A1C was 5.1, lower than my 28 year old doctor's, who is 130 lbs.
    I dropped 140 lbs also, put back on 40 over the summer, and now back down to 248, but overall, down 113. That helped.
