Re: At what point do doctors typically prescribe insulin?

There is no set number. Many folks are diagnosed much higher than you (600 or higher) and are often started on insulin to bring them down immediately. Afterwards, insulin is often used as a last resort when diet/exercise/meds are ineffectual and you don't get the results you want. In the meantime, try to avoid carbs as they turn to glucose and bring your numbers up.
