Like "I was originally diagnosed type 2 and did metformin and glipizide for 4 months before my type 1 diagnosis and insulin. Hated the pills and how they made me feel. Now on an insulin pump and i can drink (although i dont) and eat mac n cheese! I had to request further testing and a referral to an endo from my primary. I did Lantus (24 hour) and Novalog ( fast acting) prior to the pump but didnt get much control with that combo. Whichever treatment you decide on you have to know that you CAN do what you like when you like how you like, it just takes more thought and math than before. All things in moderation...thats my motto :-). You know your body better than any doctor. "
