Your father is diabetic, consult a physician in your locality who will evaluate him clinically and also look for other co morbidities and advice you accordingly. Do not worry diabetes is a common problem and can be controlled easily with diet restrictions, exercise,walk, yoga and medicines if required.

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?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The main cause for diabetes is lack of insulin, that is the beta cells in pancreas get affected and produce less insulin. Due to uncontrolled glucose and increased fat in the body, these cells get further affected so progressively there is less secretion of Insulin. So when a person has diabetes over many years like 20 to 25 years or longer, slowly beta cell function goes down and a time comes when there is a need for external Insulin to maintain expected glucose levels. This happens particularly if blood glucose is not well controlled. Thanks.

Mr metformin can be taken up to 2500 mg per day. But 100 mg is also a high dose only. If it is not causing any gastro intestinal side effects then no problem. It is really good that you have started on insulin because looking at amount of drugs that you are taking, it is necessary for you to shift to insulin. By doing self monitoring of blood sugar daily you can increase the insulin dosage every alternate day till you reach target fasting level. It is good to reduce or take away pioglitazone.
