What is the best way to lower A1C?

I was diagnosed 6 months ago and at that time my A1C was 7.7 and at this months follow up it was up to 9.9 so I'm just wondering what to think about all this and what I need to do. I'm 59 years old, about 50 pounds over weight, down about 21 lbs this year. I exercise daily and will need to work more on my diet. Just increased to 1,000 mg metformin in yesterday's appointment. I'm interested in what your thoughts are on the best way to get the numbers down. Thanks!

Sadly, diabetes is a lifelong condition although it is still possible if people get a controlled diet and body weight, the diabetes is reversed.

I think the best way now is to stick with exercise and drugs.
