thanks for writing into healthcare magic. diabetes is a progressive disease that worsens with time.Usually if insulin becomes necessary it is difficult to discontinue it without causing high glucose. you need to consult a doctor who can choose the right quantity and type of insulin to avoid hypoglycemia. also the technique with which insulin is taken is also important.I would suggest Dr Shanmugasundaram at AGADA healthcare
