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.

Hello, I have a question regarding insulin resistance and dehydration. I m a Type 1 Insulin Dependent diabetic. Have been for nearly 16 years. My HA1c was last 4.9% so I keep my numbers extremely regulated. Anyways to the question, can severe dehydration lead to insulin resistance? I have some idea of the physiology but I want to understand it thoroughly. Let me give you the story first so you can maybe give me the walk through of it all especially the dehydration and insulin resistance. So after heavy drinking ( not something I do often at all....) , 6-7 hours of hard alcoholic drinks and no water during this time. I went to sleep woke up the next morning feeling very thirsty, it d been about 18 hours since I had a sip of water. So I drank some, and became nauseous. My sugars kept rising, initially was 192, ended up at 425 before I had to call 911. I was not holding down water.. my glucose was rising, I was taking massive amounts of insulin, somewhere in the 80-100 units of Humalog range. I take ~60 units in a day and this was in a matter of 12 hours probably. And my numbers did not drop. My question is why and whats the physiology behind the insulin not working? Something with the dehydration but Im not quite understand it. Please answer this if you can. Oh and I was not consuming food during this time so the glucose rise was not from carbohydrates.
