I’m T1, 19 years and going strong, for the first time ever I have taken 2 doses of my bolus which is Toujeo U200.
My mum made me call NHS 111 and they advised I go to a&e but I would much rather manage this at home.
The first dose I took at approx 11pm and then fell asleep watching tv, woke up at 1.30am and took it again, it was only after I injected that I realised!
I’m after advice as I’ve not had this before, I’m worried about getting through the night in case I go low. I’ve set my alarm for every 2 hours to test my sugars, I’m expecting a mega hypo at some point but I’m not sure when! I’m reluctant to go to a&e as I spend far too much time in hospital for my liking as it is!
Sugars were 5.8, I had a glass of full fat coke and some sugary cake, they rose to 9.8, then 13.2 so I’m happy to see it rising rather than falling.
I’m concerned that I’m on the U200 that it’s ‘double concentrate’ does anyone think this will make a difference?
I’m also on a very high dose; 78 units per night as according to my doctors, I’m ‘insulin resistant’ and I’ve always struggled with high sugars. All other forums I’ve read about people taken a double dose, were people taking less than 20 units…everyone is different but as my dose is a lot higher, I’m a bit more worried!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated…I’m probably not going to get much sleep anyway from worry!
