This is my first post here on tudiabetes. I am glad to come across this website and hopefully can get some information to help myself out and maybe others at the same time. I'm currently in Beirut attending an american university, it being my first year. I decided to go on a strict diet, cutting out carbs almost completely out of my diet. in the past 2 months ive lost about 12 lbs, and ive dropped my average basal rate from 1.3u/hour to around 0.7u/hour. i am eating close to 1200 calories per day and i feel really good. my total daily dose of insulin has dropped SIGNIFICANTLY from over 100 units a day to a steady average near 25-30. As i was reading online i came across a website explaining how such a caloric deficit would not work for a long period of time, and i needed to add carbs to my diet also a cheat day. So i decided to have a cheat day, and i had a few loafs of bread, some icecream and chocolate. Clearly i overdid it, and since then for the past 3-4 days my blood sugars are VERY BAD. I went to bed the other night with a blood sugar of 5, and i woke up with an 18. WHICH IS EXTREMELY BAD. I have tried to contact my doctors back home and i have not had much luck. Any hospital here would not know what to do either because they would just tell me to pump insulin?! So what do I do? My current basal rate is just above 2u/hour!! I'm losing my mind and I don't know what to do. Can anyone please help me out?
