    I took insulin last on December 29,2014.I was on medication months ago. I stopped.

    Type 1 the body doesn't produce insulin and starts early in life seen in children. Type 2 the body produces but is resistant to it, commoner than 1 and more in adults. For your age I suspect you were diagnosed with type 2. It doesn't help to stop medication without doctors notice, so I will advise you go for regular checks and if given medication, use as prescribed. You will have to repeat several test if visiting a new doctor to ascertain the type of diabetes you may have.

    Good afternoon. Yes exercising will definitely have a positive effect on you. That is if you want to reduce weight especially if you were overweight. As for the fruits you can take any type.
