In brief: See doctor
Diabetes type 2 is always progressive.
Your job w our suggestions is to slow the progress. All patients if they live long enough (most pts will live long enough) will need Insulin (insulin is your friend). Now there a few other options before going to insulin, so go see doctor in order to get your fasting sugar b/w 100-120. It can be done no question about it.
