If you really are worried or want to keep track of it get a continuous gluclose monitor and that will really let you know what is going on.
Type I and II diabetes are really two different diseases. Some physicians and scientists are trying to change the terminology, because people confuse them all the time.
In some senses, Type I is "easier" to manage, because it is truly one pathophysiology, no insulin.
Type II has numerous causes and numerous pathologies. Your advice is outstanding for Type I.
