The post asked us to say when we corrected. I posted when I corrected and what my thinking was.
I don’t know why you are taking what I wrote as if it was saying everyone should do what I do. That isn’t what I wrote and it isn’t what I think.
I cited Dr. Bernstein’s advice because it has been very helpful to me. A lot of us haven’t had diabetes for 23 years and when we start to use insulin our doctors give us very little information. The doctor who originally prescribed insulin for me not only gave me a starting dose so high it would have sent me to the ER had I NOT read Bernstein’s book and started out at a much lower dose, but he also didn’t recognize the symptoms of hypo when I phoned in with them.
So for a lot of us, books and other people with diabetes are ALL we have to turn to when we are looking for information.
