What are the dangers to using Insulin/Metformin to bring glucose down while eating wrong?
My Co-worker eats anything he wants it seems. Breakfast at his desk is two large Hardees sausage egg biscuits. Lots of bread in those. Snack is a candy bar. Then there is soda, beer and dessert. He slams insulin with each meal and takes Metformin. He says his sugar is under control around 160. I never see him test. I asked him since he is not making any effort to curb his eating is he just relying on meds to regulate his blood sugar? He shrugged his shoulders with a nod.
What are the dangers of doing this?
Isn't our medication hard on our vital organs?
What does the roller coaster ride of our glucose levels do to our vital organs? Doesn't Metformin affect the kidneys?
What can I tell him to let him know this is not the right way to go
