I've been taking insulin for years. I've always said one day I wouldn't have to take shots anymore - people and doctors always said that is not the case, I would require insulin for life. I believe that all things are possible with God. I've been loosing weight and living a healthy lifestyle since June of 2011. My doctor took me off insulin shots at bedtime, I was taking 72 units. During the day I am on a sliding scale to take insulin if my glucose is high and I am taking pills. After a month I should no longer require insulin with healthy eating and exercise.
