"I "only" have T1 but it sort of disturbs me that your doctors went along with "you 'only' need [pills]" while your BG leads to a condition where you've suffered complications. It seems as if they…"

"I don't see mention of metformin in your post. Metformin works by helping to control how your liver releases glucose and it also helps with insulin resistance. I know it's another drug but it's worth condidering. I believe it is the…"
