A post was split to a new topic: Is Standard Deviation more important than average BG or Time-In-Range?
My cousin-in-law is a T2, and he had been avoiding insulin for several years. When he finally started he said it was surprising to him how easy it was and how it really helped. I assumed he was just taking a daily shot of basal, rather than switching to a full-blown basal-bolus approach, but that may be in his future.
Probably a real breath of fresh air after having so much difficulty managing with only diet oral medication and exercise. Finally has access to a tool that can help him deal with it, albeit with a bunch of gotchas.
