In the past 2 weeks, I noticed that I have been going low 1-2 times a day, and at least once during the night. I usually wake up 4-5 times a night, but I only test once during the night, because when I eat something, I figure I cant be going low a second time during the night.
I take 14 units of Novolin in the morning, and no Novo Rapid for breakfast, but I find I am still going low everyday right before lunch (about 2:00pm). I take Novo Rapid for lunch, but I feel like I shoudn’t have to, if I’m going low right at lunch time when I eat.
My endo is away on vacation for the next week, so I’m not sure what I should be doing. I’m very new to diabetes, and I’m not sure if this is just a phase and I should just leave everything. I’ve found this very stressful on my body, and I find that when I’m stressed, it makes my numbers even lower.
This morning, I ate breakfast at 9:00am and took my Novolin at 9:00am as well. I was at university, and at about 10:30am I went to a 4.2! This insulin shouldn’t have kicked in yet! It was only an hour and a half! I’m very confused, because that was the only insulin I took, and there is no way my nightime insulin could have still been in me! Has anyone else had these problems or anything similar to them? Anything advice helps!
