If anyone, someone (type 1s) could please provide some guidance, suggestions here…I’d be forever grateful .
So I cannot get basal dose right. My endo insisted I try tresiba, for me it’s been absolutely horrible…I’ve tried it 4 times…literally 300s all day long. My a1c has gone up to 9s from low 6s. I’m going on pump hopefully soon, but until then…this all i know:
6 units of Levemir keeps me flat overnight but it only lasts about 16 hrs. I’ve never understood splitting the dose…I don’t need 3 units overnight I need 6 units. Thus, can’t i just add a few extra units of levemir during the day around 1pm to cover me thru afternoon evening until next night time dose. Or, am i supposed to add another 6 units in the morning…Or am I supposed to split that 6 units pm dose into 3u am + 3u pm…although that never worked either. I’m so exhausted from this, down to 93 lbs and feel awful. Thanks!!
