Yes definitely you can.
Diet and exercise can reduce the blood sugar level along with weight loss.
Weight loss improves insulin sensitivity.
Insulin resistance is the major problem with type 2 diabetes.
You should not eat more than 25 grams carbs per meal.
High lean protein and poly unsaturated fats will be ok in the diet.
That means veggies, whole grains, lean meat etc.
The examples of good fats are: cold pressed vegetable and seed oils, avocados, fish (especially oily fish such as sardines, salmon, tuna, herring, sablefish, flounder, trout, bass and mackerel), shrimp, prawns and crayfish, raw fresh nuts, raw fresh seeds such as flaxseeds (linseeds), sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, hemp seeds, alfalfa seeds, pumpkin seeds and legumes (beans, peas and lentils).
exercise at least 30 minutes 5 days a week --treadmill, running, bicycling.
Supplements like cinnamon, fenugreek, raspberry ketones loer blood sugar level as well.
Please see a nutritionist as well.
Give a 3 month trial to diet and exercise and repeat blood tests to see how you are doing.
