lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The very fact that you have been advised to take Insulin injections for controlling blood glucose, suggests that only oral drugs seem to be not working effectively. This happens in persons whose blood glucose is exceptionally high to begin with. In some cases it is possible to do away with Insulin after some 3 to 4 months, once a strict control is achieved. Since there is no mention about your current glucose levels and HbA1c%, it is difficult to comment. Unless all the details are made available like: current fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, BP readings, lipid profile and exact dosage of various medications being taken, Based on those details, I will be able to asses the situation and then decide whether only oral treatment is a possibility. Thanks.
