Well, I've had the Type ii for many years and started insulin last year.
I am already on the oxygen and I think I feel better with it (but I am not immune to placebo effects of course). I returned my most recent oximetry result yesterday and had the Holter monitor for a day a couple of weeks ago. I haven't had an emergency call from my G.P. so I assume the results weren't too bad.
I can still walk a kilometer a day without getting disastrously tired.
Today was the second day I did not need a morning nap, though I took one after I got back from my walk this afternoon. I don't use the CPAP during naps but I do put the mask on and breath the oxygen and this seems to help a lot.
I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.
Actually you know, it is what it isn't.
