One thought on “What type of diabetes requires insulin injections?

  1. Arti says:

    Actually, all types of diabetes (type 1, type 2 and gestational) can require insulin injections. But over time, at least 40% of these folks will need to go on insulin. With type 1 diabetes, a fewone’s beta cells stop producing insulin (or enough insulin), so this means that in order to survive, insulin injections are necessary. And with gestational diabetes, insulin may be needed if blood glucose goals can’t be met with meal planning and exercise alone. In the case of type 2 diabetes, a combination of meal planning, weight loss, physical activity and oral medication may work well for a while to control blood glucose.
