Hi, do you mean Adrenaline or insulin? insulin is what controls the body's blood sugar.

There are pills available but they do not work very well, insulin is a hormone and gets broken down in the stomache.

Today diabetics use pen devices to inject insulin, they are very easy to use and are pain free, the needles are about as think as a human hair and you can barley feel them go in, they only need go in a tiny bit, 10mm (1cm) about 1/3 of an inch.

Injectable insulin is the best treatment for all types of diabetes, even type 2, if you are on pills/patches then get a new doctor because you will only get worse over time.

Yes,inducing hypoglycemia can increase adrenaline production.
