Two years ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but after a bout with DKA that changed. When I left the hospital, my daily dose of insulin was 80 units (multiple daily injections), it is now down to 26 to 34 units a day, and my A1c has gone from 16.2 to 4.7%. Could I be going into a belated honeymoon period? Is this due to my total change of life style?
