Lifestyle Changes for Type 2 Diabetes

Many lifestyle changes have been shown to be effective for 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 those taking diabetes medications.
 
For some people, lifestyle changes alone may not be enough to adequately control type 2 diabetes. In these cases, medications (including oral and injectable medications) may be necessary.
