There are monitoring devices with testing strips and lancets for "old school pokes."
Medication depends on which Type Diabetic someone is. Sounds like wooley is type 2 diabetic with his current situation. He may have to get insulin shots (Lantus (Glargine), Humalog, Novolog, whichever). He may also get oral medications like Metformin, Glyburide, etc.
I'm Type 1 diabetic. I take oral medications, Metformin and Glyburide.
There are other medications, but it really depends on how someone responds to which medications.
