I was told the same as you. But dont let it get you down, a little deit change, exercise, and ( if) you have a little weight to lose that in it self could change things. also stress is a big factors as well. try stocking up on whole wheat pasta's, and whole wheat rice, that way you wont feel like you are missing anything. meds are better than insulin, so hang in there and dont:surrender: keep fighting. we are all here if you need us. keepI am also in the same situation as you. I keep my diabetes under control with medication. One pill a day keeps the insulin away......
