Like "You may want to talk to your doctor about that. Insulin often has less side effects over time and is often a better control of your levels. Too many doctors see it as a last resort, but it really isn't. If you want to take insulin instead of pills, talk to your doctor about it. Mine didn't want to do it, but as my diabetes has progressed, he chose to do it. I said it was about time. If I had known that the insulin he put me on is available without a prescription, I would have done it a long time ago. You have to be an advocate for yourself. Have that conversation. I hope it goes well for you."
