Blood Sugar Control in a determined Patient

I am enclosing a chart of blood sugar readings, 90 of them over a period of 30 days, done by a patient of mine at an american indian reservation.
As you can see, apart from a couple of readings over 150 mg/dl, he had kept it within range. He has had Type 2 Diabetes for many years.
What combination of medications is he on?
Precisely Nothing. He had been prescribed three oral medications and two types of Insulins, but over the period of years, he has been able to come off all his medications for Type 2 Diabetes. So his pancreas are still responsive ( after many many years of having Type 2 Diabetes)..He is one determined man, he has proven every one wrong... and he can laugh as he looks at this graph...
