I am a type two diabetic.I am a type two diabeticI have been diabetic for 10+ years. I have been on the worst meds and some of the best ones to control sugars. I have lost over 80 lbs now, and although I still carry that carb mid section, I am feeling well. My last A1C was 6.7 --- not bad, not good for me. I swim four days a week for 45 minutes and walk for 15 despite the arthritis in my knees. I am down to 80 carbs a day.....I take janumet, amaryl for the diabetes and several anti inflammatories for the arthritis. I'm doing as I was told, my my daily numbers don't prove that. FBS is about 130; dailies can run from 90 - 180...so I am considering asking to be put on insulin to get back in control again.
I have questions, let's say my doc goes for it, and I gain weight....I will bawl very loudly, because this is the thinnest I've been in 30 years. So what do I have to do not to get the "insulin weight".
Is it true that once you go on insulin, you're committed, you don't come off of it?
I am thinking this is the best treatment change for me, if we can get the numbers down, and I get this under control again.
Ideas, thoughts please.
