FIRST make it very clear that most of the tabs used for diabetes either enhance body insulin secretion or increase its effect.SECONDLY indications for use of insulin are different........in this we are giving outside support to body which either is unable to manufacture insulin or there is increase requirement or last the patient is not controllable with drugs............... YES tbere are some recent tabs whose action is unlike the ones earier mentioned like VIDAGLIPTEN ...but theze need to be prescribed by a dr ,reason being the same......that is INDICATION

Aloevera gel is one that is doing wonderful help in this regard.

I have friend who has hep C and diabetes 2. He was in the hospital for dehydration and heat exhaustion. They hydrated him and he responded quite well. All his vitals were good. They put him on an IV drip with ativan and hydrocone, something for gastric acid and insulin. He has never had insulin before. But he started to shiver and tremble. He was on this drip for two days. He cannot function very well now. It is hard for him to control his elimination functions and he tremble quite a bit. I feel that the hydrocodone affect him very bad it was 5/500 because of the tylenol in it. . Before he dehydrated, he had a panel done and he was stable in all areas. His liver enzymes were elevated a little; but he was basically stable. What can he take to help recover?
