    Great work on the 30lb loss!
    No. It shouldn't be any more difficult to lose weight whilst being diabetic. Diabetes (type 2 late onset) is when your body secretes insulin but your body cells do not get stimulated to take up the glucose. Meaning that you are "insulin insensitive". With increase pf physical activity you can get ride of this over time. Via your body increases its need for glucose and your cells slowly become sensitive to glucose again. My personal opinion is. The major things which increase insulin sensitivity is weights (as you are burning carbs when lifting heavy).

    Lift heavy, do cardio. By the looks of it from your loss your diet is in check which is the major hurdle! It is proven that 10% total body weight loss has a great impact on your resting blood glucose, HDL, LDL and all other blood levels. Keep it up! u will get there.

    I hope this helps you with your question.

    Congrats on the progress, but please don't fall into the same trap most diabetics do. My dad is a type two diabetic and he did great for the first two months cutting out sugar from his diet, but then quickly put it back on (and then some) because he went crazy eating sugar free alternatives. The drug you're on (my dads on it too) helps reduce meal related spikes in blood sugar by stimulating an insulin release. So yes, this will likely help you out a great deal on the same note as what the poster above me said.
