Ive just been to my endo for the first time since my discharge from hospital following diagnosis. She was not pleased that im counting carbs and adjusting insulin dose accordingly. She told me that I should have a basis bolus amount, eat the same number of carb portions at each meal and only adjust the dose when im say above or below 80. Basically, she things that day to day variations in cab quantity and insulin bolus dose is a bad idea. I was feeling quite confident about the whole thing and now i just dont know. My numbers were good, almost all between 60-140.
Secondly she told me i was testing my blood sugar too often, for the past week ive been doing 10 a day. They thought it was crazy.
Im confused as to wheter its best to keep ‘doing my own thing’ or listen religiously to the doc…maybe somewhere inbetween…
Do you change your carb each day or do you stick to a set routine, say 5 at breakfast, 5 lunch, 5 dinner?
