If you're referring to oral meds, I never took any; don't trust them.

I was diagnosed in 2009. I started on insulin in 2016.

It was disheartening to need anything - meds or insulin - because I thought I would be able to manage it indefinitely (instead of only 7 years) with weight loss and a healthy diet....like some doctors have said. But, some things are in our control & some things aren't; we don't get guarantees in life. And, if doctors knew everything, they could cure everything.

Two friends of mine have cancer. One has had breast cancer & the other has a recent diagnosis of ovarian cancer & it's "Stage 4."
Both of them religiously followed their doctors' advice about frequent cancer screenings - every 6 months. So...how do they have "advanced, inoperable, terminal cancer" when we're constantly told "Cancer screenings detect cancer at its early stages when it can be easily treated?"
