Hi all...my first time here... I was originally diagnosed with getsational diabetes in my country...after I gave birth the doc said it will go away...but it did'nt... It kept on hanging around.Its been 3 years that I'm on Lantus...I live in Egypt,but originally from South Africa....these docs here told me I have to take a shot morning and evening...but this is not what the doc in my country told me...He said Lantus is one shot per day.In any case...I just want to know...since we are all needle happy...I think...here...would adding anti diabetic pills to taking insulin shot help control sugar levels or not. I'm so fed up of these docs here because they know nothing about diabetes...they keep talking about not eating sweets etc,but as we know all foods contain sugars or will be converted into glucose... So any advice for me to be healthier here!
