    For many T2 is progressive and there comes a time for many that Inuslin might become necessary (not for everyone, but for many). So it might be something that you need to look into for yoruself and talk it over with your medical team. 

    That being said depending on what your stress and other emotions can also effect your glucose levels over all, I've found.

      thank you, went to my doctor today,and she mentioned i may have to go to type 1 diabetes, but  perhaps you are right, im maybe  over stressing things,as I have always been very healthy and active.Is tghere such a thing as an insulin pill, rather than the injecting ??

      If you are T1 then you will have had a test dun that confirms you have a auto immune condition becuase you can't be a T2 and go to being a T1 its impossible, the best is that you are a T2 who needs insulin as the two conditions are not the same in their development or factors. 

      There is a tiral currently for inhaled insulin, but its not covered by most insurances in the US and I'm unsure if its in the UK as I know its not fully here in Canada as yet. Other wise insulin is injected, might not be fun or great but you get use to it over time. I'm needle phobic but I inject a min of 4 times a day upwards of 10+ in a day depeding on whats happening and what my numbers are.
