You may even be able to stop it -- at least for a while -- if you’re making good lifestyle choices and you keep your blood sugar under control for several months at a lower dose, Faiman says.

Though everyone is different, an average patient with diabetes will require insulin to keep blood sugars well controlled about 10 years after their diagnosis. This is why we are able to use medications that are not insulin early on but eventually must add insulin.

She says doctors usually won’t reduce medicines until A1C drops below 7.0%. In the ADA publication Diabetes Forecast, pharmacist Craig Williams, PharmD, writes, “Unfortunately, the medications that are used to help manage blood glucose in people with diabetes do not fix… the diabetes itself. As a result, the medications generally cannot be stopped without losing the blood glucose control that they were providing.”

Keep taking your diabetes medications – even if you don't feel like eating. But there are some medicines that you shouldn’t take as much of or stop taking altogether. Make sure you talk to your diabetes team as soon as you’re feeling ill so they can give you the right advice.

Do not stop taking metformin without talking to your doctor. If you stop taking metformin suddenly, you may reduce the control over your diabetes. Treatment for diabetes is usually for life. But if your kidneys are not working properly, your doctor will tell you to stop taking metformin.
