Hi,thanks for query.Primary goal of treating diabetes is to prevent complication and have a smooth control either with medicines or injections.When optimum dose of drugs is given and still sugar not in control the best way is go for insulin.In diabetic patients the pancreas cells are exhausted and partially destroyed.In order to give them rest and help them recover at times insulin is required.Please do not shy away from it,it is a wonderful drug.And will save you from complications.Stress is a very important factor from control,please try to balance it.bye.

This is a bad situation now really, some one  is denied treatment for the sake of not having insurance and money, What kind of country you are in? flee away from that. why do you want to stay there when your very existence is bothering because you do not have money or insurance.

How does Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo effect blood viscosity? I m insulin resistant, and I keep track of my blood sugar levels periodically after meals and fasting just to make sure everything is copacetic. Last night, when I pricked my finger, I noticed my blood was very thin. I couldn t get a well formed drop. It was runny like water. I would like to know how the birth control could contribute to this effect. It s odd to me because birth control pills are associated with clotting.... Appreciate your insight!

Hi, I was taking Cetapin XR 500 for about 4 years. In November, 2013, I was found to have low PP sugar levels (66) alongwith excessive thirst and urination and so was advised to discontinue the medicine. I underwent Osmolality (serum and Urine) tests also among some other tests. Ever since I stopped the medicine, my weight has been constantly increasing. It was already at 77-78 kg in November, 2013 and presently at 88 kg. GTT and Insulin (Fasting and 1 hr.) are within referral range, but Insulin PP was slight more than the upper range (5). What should I do? Jaya
