Howdy again Brian.

You have a lot of folks answering you on your previous posting, as have I. By "type 1 shots" I suspect you mean insulin. Insulin is for type 2s also, in fact I was taking insulin for about 5 yrs before I discovered I could manage my DM with my own pancreas' insulin production IF I ate very carefully. You can see what I did here ~ http://www.diabeticconnect.com/discussions/14... .

Of course not everyone can do this but when I was on insulin (NPH 2x/day — about 18 units per injection) I thought I couldn't do it either.

i take novilin 70/30 twice a day 40 units…been doing this for almost 9 yrs…just tired of pricking fingers every day for reading…sticking myself in stomach…then to keep getting these diagnoses without cures…very frustrating

Have you considered talking to your doctor about getting a pump. That way it is monitored and you don't have to poke so often. Lots of members here use them and love them.
