depending how long you have had diabetes, and your overall condition, losing weight and changing your diet to a strict low carb diet / keto diet, could possibly put your diabetes into remission or at worst make it very much easier to manage.
The principle of low carb diet is restricting carbs, particularly all grains, sugars, starchy veges and sweet fruits, and eating a diet that focusses more on protein, low carb plant foods (veges and non-sweet fruits), some nuts, and healthy fats. While this may sound a little intimidating it is actually pretty easy and there are lots of great recipe ideas online easily accessible. key words will be low-carb, and keto. If you do look into ketogenic diet, do not use it as an excuse to eat too much fat; if you want to lose weight fat has to be limited to fats that come naturally with the foods that you eat, rather than lots of extra fats being added.
There are now many cases where this has happened (you can look up Virta Health a company that tries to guide patients to do this), and there are also many online supportive communities.
My primary thinks that diabetes can be reversed. Neal Bernard MD believes a completely vegan diet can reverse diabetes type2. He's written several books on the topic including a cookbook. He';s on the web too.https://www.pcrm.org/good-nutrition/nutrition-for-clinicians. PCRM Physicians committee for Responsible Medicine.
