That is the official position statement of the ADA. We advocate that patients follow a diet that they can stick to and we attempt it for 6 months to 1 year prior to trying any medication unless other risk factors are present.

Too much sugar? Sure, it is detrimental, especially if you don't exercise and use the energy you are consuming. Sloth is the sin that is killing us, in combination with Gluttony.
