Re: At what point do doctors typically prescribe insulin?

Thanks for the reply. That gives me some reassurance that the situation may not be as severe as I thought. After having my blood glucose test around 100 for years, having it shoot up so high in about a year and a half since my last test was a shock. My brother's test was only around 150 when he was diagnosed, I believe. But really - some people actually test at 600? I thought a person would be in a coma before that!

I already have a pretty good diet, but know I'm going to have to cut serving size on some of my carbs, especially those delightful pasta meals and homemade bread. This will, no doubt, give me some added incentive to get serious about getting some exercise, too. So often I've started but lost interest after a few days or weeks.
