The first course of treatment for diabetes is diet/exercise. For most this means cutting carbohydrates and moving more. The gold standard for first medication is metformin. It does not cause lows like many of the other drugs. It simply helps to stop liver dumps that often cause morning highs or highs when you have not eaten properly. It can be hard on your gastro system at first, but ramping up slowly helps.
