Diabetes and Insulin Treatment

There are two forms of diabetes…type one and type two.  In type one, the body does not make insulin to help control blood sugar.  In type two, there's not an absolute need for insulin to be given as a medication.  The problem is often how the body produces insulin.  There's a thought that insulin receptors are not working that well.  There are medications that can be taken by mouth that help, but many people are afraid of taking insulin.  They look at it as an end of the line, as if the disease is beyond treatment, but this is wrong.  There is a growing trend in type two diabetes care that's emphasizing insulin even earlier in use.
