Your husband does not appear to be a type 1. Type 1s cannot manage for more than a few days/months without insulin... A type 2 can also be insulin dependent. That does nor make the person a Type 1...

Also suggest that you ask the doctor about basal + bolus therapy. Sure that will mean 4 injections instead of 2, but thats a much better way to get good control....


HbA1c 5.9 (Feb 2019)
Novarapid = 4-5 at breakfast (no other insulin)
Metformin 1000 mg
