Diet and insulin: The treatment of diabetes depends largely on the type of diabetes. In type 1, the body fails to make adequate insulin, which is needed to move sugars from the blood stream into the cell. Insulin shots and monitor diet carbs are the main Rx. For type 2 diabetes, a person's insulin is ineffective, so oral medications, weight loss if obese, and limiting carbs in the diet, are main Rx. See doctor
