Like "Way to go! Sail on! Your doctor's goal should also be yours. My dad was on insulin for a long time. Just before he died he was in the hospital and the nurse refused to give him his insulin. She said it would kill him since it was so high. But that's what he needed to keep his blood sugar under control. He had deteriorated that much. Not long after, he died of congestive heart failure. Insulin is not a cure-all. Try to keep your under control without meds. That's the best goal of all."
