A 65 years old diabetic who takes insulin as treatment, can a person take any oral medication instead of insulin to control the disease?
Last resort: Insulin is often considered a last resort, given the potential complications and difficulties taking it. And often we try one of several classes of oral meds first. However, sometimes when a person's sugars are really high, it is easy to assume that it is beyond the ability of the oral meds, and we will go straight to insulin. ...Read more
A friend is diabetic & is on meds for years.His cretanine level has gone up.Is it better if he takes insulin than oral meds to keep sugar controlled.
Depends: Hi. That depends on how high the creatinine went up to. Metformin should be stopped if creatinine goes up much because risk of a serious side effect goes up. Some sulfonylureas can accumulate if creatine goes up much. Insulin tends to accumulate in renal insufficiency too, but dose can be micro-adjusted if necessary. Your fried should talk with his/her doc and maybe see a kidney doc. Good luck! ...Read more

If a type 1 diabetic patient forgot to take insulin as prescribed by a doctor, what would happen?
Not a good outcome: Patients with type 1 diabetes need insulin. If you forget one shot, your sugar will go up temporarily. Stop it entirely and you will get very sick and eventually die in a coma. Prior to the discovery of insulin, that is what happened. If you take insulin, but don't monitor much, you will not die from coma, but will get complications (eye, kidney, etc) more quickly. ...Read more

I am a male 65 years old. A type 2 diabetic for last 7years. Take metformin 500mgs twice a day after breakfast and dinner.Hba1c is 6. When to insulin?
No need for Insulin: With a good hba1c of 6%, you are fine. Just stay on the metformin. Most diabetics may need more agents and Insulin with time but there is no formular to predict when you will progress further. Keep to a healthy lifestyle - exercise, eat well and keep your weight down. That may help to delay progression (no guarantees though). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
