I'm 24 yrs old and very thin. I was diagnosed T2 for 2 yrs ago. I took oral med (Daonil and Metformin) during 2 yrs but my BS in the morning are 170-300 and last month A1c is 11%. Now my new dr. take me on Bolus Basal insulin so I can control my FBS. the dr. gave me only C-peptide test to know if there is insulin or not.

I'd like to know why I never be coma or vomit or go to ICU? if i'm T1 in past 2 yrs and oral med not work for me.

However, if i'm T2 why i'm so thin and oral med not work and have to use insulin very soon?

Thanks

METFORMIN is a member of the family Biguanider.Daonil stimulates Your Pancreas to produce more Endogen Insulin, because if you have NIDDM (Diabetes II), then you are Insulin Resistant. Your body needs more Insulin to manage nutrition’s in your blood.Metformin stimulates your muscle to be better for uptake of Carbohydrate from the blood.Metformin is given to the FAT people and not for the THIN people. Your second Physician is right about measurement of Your C-Peptide. The analyse show to Your Physician how much Your Pancreas produce Insulin. Do not worry about your exogenous Insulin. It is better then Sulfonyl-Urin matter like Daonil, the very poison matter. Insulin is Anabolic matter and it is used from many sport people i.e. body builders.If You like to know more about Insulin’s action in your body, then you must read in the Biochemistry books. Moreover read please on www.glycemicindex.com to learn about what kind of nutrition you shod take. Eat nutrition’s with low GI i.e. under 50 or better fewer than 20.You ask: “I'd like to know why I never be coma or vomit or go to ICU? if i'm T1 in past 2 yrs and oral med not work for me”.If You are IDDM ( Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, Diabetes-I), but You are NOT, because for a long time ago Your body’s mitochondria have produced to much Keton matters and You have ended with KetoAcidosis or Your blood glucose have been so high and You have ended with NKHGHOC ( Non Ketotic Hyperglycaemic HyperOsmolar Coma). The Daonils stimulation of Your Pancreas has not been very good, i.e. it has not produced enough Insulin. It seems to me you are extremely Insulin Resistant and of that reason you need bigger amount of Exogenous Insulin to bring Your BG out of the blood. You have NIDDM ( Not Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, Diabetes.II).With Your Insulin intake you shod be very careful, because there are risk to become HYPOGLYCEMIA. Listen to Your Physician how to titrate Your Insulin intakes and learn the signs when you approach to the hypoglycaemic conditions.You are very thin because if you do not have enough Insulin, then the Hepar use a biochemical process who reduces your muscle mass. Now you intake Insulin and You will rebuild your mussels.It is a very short explanation on your question.Sincerely YoursDon
