GDay All

I am 42yrs old, have type 2, levels are 10-20mmol(cannot get them lower) May God Help Me......

Oral Meds:
Diamicron 60MR
Tensig (beta blocker)
Notin (blood pressure)

I cannot get my levels down, so i have started using Diabex 1000 twice aday to help. still cannot get them lower than 12mmol. And the Meds make me feel ****.


I was wondering if insulin is the better option?

Insulin is a wonderful tool! Have you discussed it with your doctor?

Are there any side effects to using insulin?
