welcome to the board. You'll find that there are quite a few members here who control their D with diet. Many exercise, but some of us aren't able to because of physical limitations, like myself. Very low carb is what does it for me.

I do very low carb and I do tons of exercise but I still need metformin to keep my bgs close to the 100 range. Congrats on your success getting off meds.

James, I'm confused by your question...I'm on no meds and I can't do much exercise because of another physical condition. What are you hunting? I control mine with diet only.

What is your question?

There are so many here on the forum who have controlled their BGs by diet and exercise only. I am hoping to join them someday....

No meds here - diet, with exercise. You'll mind many in the same situation as you, perhaps just make it clearer what you are searching for...

I'm willing to 'stand up & be counted' as well. No meds.
