Like "January it will be 34 years I have been a type 1 diabetic.. You first need to know that no matter how good you are, nobody is perfect so don't put too much pressure on yourself if you have high blood sugars.. If your blood sugars are high and no matter what you are doing to help it does not work, you may need to inject insulin.. Many type 2's need insulin and after a few years, the pills lose effect with many people... As far as your doctor not telling you much about diabetes.. Typical!!!"
