Due to insurance restrictions I had to give up my lantus pens :( My endo gave me a dosage to start with Novolin N and R twice per day. I took my first dose last night at dinner time. My numbers were a little higher than I would have liked before going to bed but when I took my fasting this morning it was 122, so I was happy with that. I took my morning injection and a little later I had 25 carbs for breakfast. I did a little around the house along with some work research. I then got on the treadmill for 30 minutes. I decided to wait another hour and test and it was 202 :( Well I had not had any lunch yet. That was about an hour ago and I'm hungry so decided to have half an avocado with some balsamic vinegar on it.
I sent an email to my doc and waiting for a reply, but can I still use the humalog for corrective insulin? Are is my body still trying to regulate the new insulins? I've been reading up on the Novolin insulins and I know their timings are different. I guess I was expecting my reading to be fairly level after that timing of the insulin, eating and exercise. Am I thinking wrong?
