Hey all. Just got back from a dentist app intent where she told me that I have Peridontitis? Not sure of the spelling. Anyway, been in tears as I know my blood sugar control had not helped matters. Im currently on 4 X glucoside a day and still waking on between 14-17 and post meals are higher than that even!!! Question I have is if I beg my doctor to go on insulin will she have to consider it? or will she be able to point blank refuse I feel now that insulin is the only way. Metformin didn't work as she believes I'm not producing enough insulin and the gliclazide obviously isn't working either...not even had a sniff of a hypo on them can anyone advise me?
