Diabetes type 2 now going on to insulin.

exdvr Community member Posts: 331 Pioneering
Hi.      After many years on Gliclazide pills and Liraglutide "Victoza" injection my blood sugar levels are still too high.  I'm now being started on insulin in addition to the other two.  Does this mean that I'm now Type 1and who do I need to notify?
Has anyone else been in this position and how has it affected you?

Best wishes.

    Hi there 

    First of all no it doesn't mean you are now type 1 you are still type 2 but termed insulin dependant 

    I am the same I went onto insulin years ago for type 2 and find it much easier to control now though it does take time to get used to injecting and correct dose 

    You should inform dvla if you drive and also your car insurance company 

    You should see a diabetic nurse to help you get your control

    Have you heard of the Keto diet? I was able to put my type 2 into remission, when I did.
