Hi Ali,
Welcome, Some of your experience with being diagnosed with diabetes sounds similar to yours. At 54 I started with oral meds and that worked for about 3 years and as it was explained to me my pancras would eventually stop producing insulin. which it has. For 3 years I struggled with MDIs but with not very good control My Diabetes team suggested that I should consider the insulin pump for about a year I resisted but finally out of frustration I gave in and and since I have been pumping my BG has been at is best.
What I am trying to say is with BG as high as you are experiencing I would say don't wait. everything you do to lower your BG will improve your health
