Lifestyle Changes for Type 2 Diabetes

Many lifestyle changes have been shown to be very effective at controlling type 2 diabetes (especially early type 2 diabetes). These lifestyle changes include weight loss, becoming more physically active (see Diabetes and Exercise), and changes in diet (see Diabetic Diet). In fact, these changes are important for all people with type 2 diabetes, including people taking diabetes drugs.
 
For many people, lifestyle changes alone may not be enough to adequately control type 2 diabetes. For these people, diabetes medication may be necessary.
