If you were told that you had diabetes type 2 ,it would stay as such . Sometimes its well controlled with diet or exercise and medications may not be required. You should ideally get a fasting blood sugar level done along with HbA1c to check previous 3 months sugar control.

It would also help clarify whether you need to start any medications for it or not.

hope it was helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
