Well, its a good think they found it. I take the pills and they work alright with diet changes. I don't know if that is an option for you. Even with big shots of steroids, the pills have been keeping me at around 100. Also, I had high blood pressure and was on lisinopril for it and when they treated my diabetes, it brought my blood pressure down and with the lisinopril (which I no longer needed since by high BP was tied to the rise in blood sugar) it dropped really dangerous low and I passed out and ended up in the ER. So if you have high bp, you may want to test it alot once they start treating the diabetes. I wish they would screen everyone for diabetes before treating them for high blood pressure. I'm glad they are taking care of this for you, maybe you will feel better once they treat it, however they treat it.
