Thank you for asking at ehealthforum

I read your question and i understand your concern. It appears you have exhausted your insulin reserves and no oral medicine is gonna help control it any further. You need insulin now. Talk to your doctor and let them prescribe it.

I hope it helps. Please talk to your local health care provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education purposes and cant be alternative to actual medical consult .
