Like "If you are type 2 drlott, you don't have to worry about a honeymoon period as it only is a thing which happens to type 1s. See the article on Honeymoon period here ~ http://www.healthcentral.com/diabetes/c/651280/50845/honeymoon-period If you are asking whether you as a type 2 will ever need to go on insulin, it will depend on a lot of other variables but the main variable is how well you manage your diabetes, and what kind of foods and driniks you consume. I was put on insulin instead of metformin because my kidneys quit on me and met. was contraindicated for kidney patients on dialysis. I eventually discovered that I didn't need the insulin because IF I ate VERY CAREFULLY, I could manage my Blood Glucose (BG) without the use of medications. I was fortunate in that regard since not all type 2s can do that. James "
