I am a type 2 diabetic.
I use insulin but do not require it. I think on Rick Mendosa's website he goes into the different types of type 2 diabetics. You can search if your interested. He has lots of good information.

The studies I have read seem to say that its better to treat with medications. That it will slow down the progession of the disease.
Different medications have different side effects and there are a few more choices today.

I'll bet the drug companies came up with those studies,In fact i sometimes wonder if Diabetic type2 condition isnt just a natural part of aging and the drug companies are exploiting the condition to make billions of $$$.
