Type 2 diabetes and insulin therapy

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay is helping his patients with type 2 diabetes manager their insulin.

Many patients feel that they have failed in controlling their diabetes when insulin is recommended as a new treatment in addition to pill therapy.

Due to the natural course of diabetes, many type 2 patients may need insulin at some point to better achieve goals to control their blood sugars.

Counseling by your physician and diabetic education classes can help alleviate fears.
