I’ve been trying to split my dose and use bolus corrections upon waking up to try and better handle the dawn phenomenon but i have some questions:
When does the liver dumb actually begin ?
How far should i split my lantus dose ?
Will using another type of insulin help ? like Levemir or even complementing with short/intermediate insulins ?
does R-ALA help with the DP ? i’ve already ordered some to try after reading Dr Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution.
right now i’m doing it at bedtime and as soon as i am up for convenience which usually leads to higher BGs in the morning but today i tried one dose at bedtime and second at 4 am instead of the usual 6:40 dose plus 1 unit bolus correction and it did help as i woke up 6:30 with a nice 5.5 but after taking the morning shower and getting dressed it climbed to 6.4 and by the time i arrived at work it was 7.1
