i am diabetic since 10 yrs, some times my sugar levels croses very high, doctor said it was more than 300. then i was admitted for 1 week, they gave me insulin
injections only when i was in hospital. later my sugar levels became normal then i was discharged. but at the time of discharge they gave me only the tablets, but on insulin injections. i asked doctors then they said they give insulin only when the sugars are at high levels. if sugars are under normal then only medications are enough. so there is no need to use pricks every day. as per doctors advice medications to be taken life long.
