What sort of medication will I have to take?

Oral diabetes medication helps to control blood glucose levels in people who have Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetics can require insulin injections as well if oral medication is not effective in controlling blood glucose. These drugs are usually prescribed along with recommendations to make certain dietary changes and to adhere to an exercise plan. If you have Type 1 diabetes, you will have to inject yourself every day with insulin. See your doctor for more information in this regard.
