Medications to treat diabetes are available only by prescription. Insulin must be given by injection or infusion beneath the skin. Oral medications are available that increase the release of insulin from the pancreas and/or increase the responsiveness of the body's cells to the insulin naturally produced by
type 2 diabetes patients. Type 1 diabetes patients have stopped making insulin and thus must take insulin.
