In brief: They both

Work. Best is diet and exercise, plus whatever medication your doctor thinks is appropriate for your particular case of diabetes.
There are also non-insulin injectable medications known as glp-1 agonists which are often helpful. Either of these choices, or more often a combination of several, can control you blood sugar if done correctly.

In brief: Depends

If oral drugs work then why take insulin.
If the oral drugs do not work then you have no choice but to take insulin.
