Sorry if this has been asked -A basic question: When do you correct a high BG? A follow up question: I have had several occasions whereby my BG was about 160/170, corrected with 1 unit insulin, expected a drop of about 50 units only to see the BG slightly decrease by about 20 points over 1.5 hours (based on Dexcom graph). What could be causing this?
Everyone’s diabetes is different, but wondering : Is it more difficult to correct a VERY HIGH than it is to correct a mild high?
Is it more difficult to correct a fatty/carb meal high than a not so fatty?
If insulin action peaks around 1 to 1.5 hours, I hesitate to correct at less than 2 hours from concern that maybe the double straight arrow may change to angle up or level horizontally.
Comments thoughts suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
