Pens and oral meds. Ditching my antidepressants made my blood sugar go down. Was able to reduce my insulin dosage by 26 units daily. Not only that but my energy level is way up, and all that activity helps blood sugar levels.

Can type 1s take pills? I've never been given the option. I've always had insulin. I did like the pens though. I do need to start working out though lol.
