I discussed this in depth with my primary. He is also a friend . When I decided to manage my diabetes with a combo of once a day insulin and diet and exercise. He said we could try but people rarely listen and follow through. I did follow through and he was amazed at what we accomplished. I do however have some pretty serious self control and discipline. I think you can do it! But YOU are responsible for it’s succes or failure! I’m pulling for you !
