I think you will have a very hard time losing weight on Amaryl because it is stimulating your Pancreas to produce even more insulin when the problem with Type 2 diabetes is abundance of insulin and insulin-resistance. You will burn out your pancreas altogether and end up on insulin for the rest of your life. The best medication for Type 2 is Metformin.

I'm a Type I and take insulin. But I would recommend that anyone with diabetes read Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. It is also a low carb plan with tons of information about diabetes.

If you do not have an endocrinologist supervising your diabetes, you should find one. Are you testing regularly and recording the results? There are so many things you need to be aware of. You need the book and fortunately, you can read of parts of it online for free:

If there is anything I can help you with as far as diabetes, please ask. I've had Type 1 for 26 years.
