Hello Doctor, This consultation is regarding my father who has been a diabetic patient for the last 18 years now. His diabetes was always under control and he regularly took two tablets to maintain the sugar level. This was continued till he started avoiding to go to a doctor for a health check up and change in medicines. And then in 2014 his sugar levels started fluctuating s lot. He then visited a different doctor who for some reason started prescribing him a heavy dose of insulin and a bunch of tablet that included Januvia 50, Vogli 0.3, and about 10units of Human Mixtard 50 in the morning and 15 units of the same insulin before dinner. This has been keeping his sugar levels under control but I am really worried about him taking this Insulin every day to keep his sugar level controlled. My question and concern is regarding the same, that can this not be avoided and aren't there any other alternative to taking insulin. He doesn't even have Type 1 diabetes.
Dr. Sanjay Bhatt
Diabetes Specialist
Insulin is safe and best medicine rather than oral.so let him continue same
