I'm glad the appointment is tomorrow. I'm sorry to say but the pill the GP has given him most likely did nothing for him the past two weeks. Most pills that type 2s use are to help the body process insulin better. With type 1 the body isn't making insulin, there for there is nothing for the pill to do. I hope you get a lot of answers tomorrow. Bring a pen and a note pad, there is so much information that its nearly impossible to remember it all at once. We're all here to help as well if you need it.
