I sometimes really feel bad when I see kids with type 1. My mother diagnosed with type 2 3 years ago and she’s controlling it with food as she has SKD -3 and can’t take insulin.

Since she has type 2 insulin is not required instead anti diabetic drugs like metformin,sulphonylureas etc are drug of choice consult a diabetologist or endocrinologist.
