We heard about a company that is looking to interview patients with type 2 diabetes who have recently started using insulin. They want to make a series of videos about your experience with insulin to help other patients who are facing similar decisions. Sounds kind of cool.

Here were the requirements that were given:
• type 2 diabetes
• recently started insulin
• between 40 and 65 years old

So if you're interested, please email diabetescasting@yahoo.com small for more info.

I was taking metformin for to long and it attacked my kidneys & liver. Switching to insulin has removed the problem. I was having intense pain for 1.5 years, switching to insulin removed the pain in two days.

I'm all for this project! To bad I've been on insulin for four years, I have advice to share.

This is great. I think it will help people understand that insulin is not a bad thing.

Hi Gabby! That is exactly what we are setting out to do with this project. Thanks for the comment. Hopefully some of your visitors will be interested in this project!

Me too. I know my doctor won't do it for me. But my mom got her doctor to listen to her and she does a long lasting shot once a day before going to bed. She love it. It has helped her so much. She does have chances of lows now, but so far they have not been bad.
I hate it when doctors "threaten" us with insulin. That is so wrong.
