Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Diet, exercise, oral medication are three basic steps to control type 2 diabetes. Depending on availability of free endogenous insulin and control this will work in most of the cases but at times during temporary crisis like surgery, heart attack etc insulin has to be brought in temporarily. When things go out of hand insulin may have to be introduced may not be in all cases.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Consult doctor, meanwhile take nexpro-l 1 tab daily.

Type 1 diabetes is insulin dependent but in type 2 diabetes which is generally due to genetic predisposition and our unhealthy lifestyle so if you follow good diet with proper exercise you can bring your blood sugar level under control and together with it a correct constitutional treatment will help you.

I am 17 years of age and am suffering from diabetes.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
You may be suffering from type 1 diabetes. Send your reports in private consultation at this site. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Hello, When T2 diabetes goes on for very long time say 25 to 30 years or longer, then because of persistent hyperglycemia and lipotoxicity beta cells get affected and. Over the years cell mass is lost and most of the T2 patients end up on insulin in later years of their life. Thanks.

My thyroid TSH is 12.93 how can I reduce it despite the fact that I am taking Eltroxin 150 mg everyday? Please Help.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
The direct evidence for controlled hypothyroidism is a normal report of tsh which shows that it is within range. If the tsh is higher than the upper range then the dose will be increased and if the tsh is lower than the lower range then the dose will decreased. If the tsh is within range then you have controlled hypothyroid state and the dose will be carried on as such.

Diabetes (t2dm) is a preventable disease. You can remain free from it if a modified lifestyle is followed. Regular exercise for more than 1 h a day, avoiding excess fats, deep fried foods, maintaining normal weight (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs). Also avoid smoking and alcohol.

lybrate-user, When on treatment for hypothyroidism ideally TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, then all the symptoms are in control. Hence, if TSH level has gone up, then you will have to increase the dose to earlier level and check TSH after 6 weeks. Thanks.
