I am 28 years of age. I got diagnosed with diabetes 6 months ago (Aug 2014) when I went to doctor having fungal infection. The readings were - FBS 180, PPBS 320, HbA1c 8.9 I was not overweight; (73 Kg at 173 cm tall, my waistline was 35.5 inches), but I was lethargic, used to eat some junk food (cream buns, puffs, potato chips and so on..). My father has diabetes from past 15 years.
I was put on Metformin 500 mg twice a day and I also started to very low calorie intake. I also did some life style modifications (30 mins walking, using stairs, etc..). Then in Jan 2015 I went up for sugar checkup then results were - FBS 59, PPBS - 87, HbA1c 6.8 I weighed 62 Kgs, waistline 30.5 inches. My doctor advised to discontinue the medicine and recommended just diet and excercise.
After that I have been monitoring my blood sugars using accu-check glucometer. Even without the medications my blood sugar is in control. I had 2 scoops of chocolate ice-cream this valentine day and checked my sugar level after 2 Hrs. It was 124. I will take HbA1c test in march. I have started eating normally (no low card diet) from past one month.
My question is can I control my diabetes like this without medication rest of my life or at some point of time I need to take medication. Please assist me if anyone has come with this kind of case.
