Hi. I’m 79 years old and got diagnosed with type 2 nine years ago. The dr immediately put me on metroformin. I did research and became a vegan, and cut out all sugar. I took myself off the drug after a week or so. My A1C is consistently around 5.5 give or take a mg or two. I never go to the dr. As long as I don’t eat sugar I’m fine. I eat pasta, veggies, fruits and low calorie breads or tortillas. I don’t exercise much per se, but I live on a small ranch so I move around a lot and do heavy lifting.
