Thanks for your query Most diabetics develop resistance to both tablet s and insulin with time. That's the reason why they use different types of tablets and insulin. They try to treat the diabetics in such a way that they remain responsive to available medicines. Hence they are not over exposed to any single medicine to make sure they don't develop resistance to it.
