Am going to lose my feet or go blind now that I am on insulin?
The only potential complications attributable to insulin are hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) and, in some instances, weight gain.
Usually people who experience complications after starting on insulin have waited too long before initiating therapy. Having high blood glucose readings over a long time can lead to negative outcomes. It is in your best interest to start insulin therapy before your A1C is unacceptably high and insulin is a ‘last resort.”
