The only thing that could help keep your sugars down is exercising and not eating high carb foods.
You don't have to be a T1 to be on insulin. Many T2s are on it, especially the long acting. If Shelby is not also on mdi (numerous additional injections of rapid acting to compensate for carbs) then the poster is most likely a T2. Also, almost no T1s are put on Januvia.
Shelby, I hope your sugars continue to stay in range. It is possible that because you are eating well, you will continue to be ok, at least for the time being. I hope so.
Best of luck.
