I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes however I wasn't prescribed any medication by my doctor. Is it normal to not require medication with a new diagnosis?

Initial treatment of Type 2 Diabetes includes lifestyle modification (weight loss and exercise), as well as the medication metformin.  The general treatment guideline for pre-diabetes is lifestyle modification, including weight loss and exercise.  However, treatment guidelines may be altered to suit the individual.
