Can I quit my meds cold turkey??

I'm a Type II diabetic, 66 y/o male, diagnosed about 5 years ago. I want to try natural remedies to control my sugar. Right now, I'm using Metformin 500mg twice a day, Glipizide 5mg 1 a day, and Januvia 1 a day. I also take Ramipril. Can I stop these meds cold?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Not a good idea.

Then how do I get off the meds and on the natural supplements?

Slow and steady wins the race. Please don't quit your current medication at once. Work on the correct remedy that is the best match with your state and symptoms.

Then, slowly phase out of the allopathic world!

Good Luck.

Nawaz's advice is sound. Firstly, you should find a practitioner to help you through this process. Diabetes is serious, and without qualified and experienced care you could get yourself into trouble.

Homoeopathy is not about natural supplements, it is about finding a cure for your condition. Type 2 diabetes can be cured with homoeopathy, although it is not always easy. However, a patient should only be weaned off their medication AFTER the homoeopathy has begun to make a marked difference to their blood sugar levels, not before.

No patient on orthodox medication should stop them 'cold turkey', certainly not without a health professional to manage their situation. For most of my patients, I never ask them to consider even reducing their meds until after I can see a marked and stable improvement.

You indeed have a long life. Now, you must believe me, I was going to request you to take this case.

To give him a head start, I was going to request him to visit the following links.

Please keep up the good work.

Diabetes is not a condition that I would feel comfortable managing over an internet forum. I do manage such cases in clinic so I can say that it is possible to cure them. It is not easy, but it is possible.

Nawaz, I suspect that you are trying to 'get a rise' out of me so to speak, but I am not really interested in reacting, thanks all the same.

Yes, please direct people to those links where I fail to do so. It can only create a better understanding of how homoeopathy works and make those who frequent these forums more able to make informed decisions about advice given here. It is much appreciated.

It would be useful Rockyt for you to follow those links and read the articles there, so that you can understand how homoeopathy does approach any kind of named disease - not with supplements, not by prescribing a remedy for diabetes or blood sugar, but by assessing the individual problems and issues the person has.

Please do not suspect.

I am, what I am, I just speak the truth.

Thank you all for the advice. I will explore the sites you recommend. My allopathic doctor would not even begin to understand this.
