Hey guys, new to the forum and have a lot of info to share and also questions to ask. I'll start with this one. I am finding when I wake up I am getting high reading, usually from 9.0-10.5. My sugars are usually fine when I go to bed and if I check overnight they have been fine (6.4, etc). So here is my problem, I am currently taking (experimenting) between 4-7 units of lantus at bedtime (11pm-12am). Now there doesn't seem to be much difference in the sugar reading when I wake up, but the higher dosage of lantus i use, the more i go low after breakfast. Now I only use 2 units of novorapid with breakfast for roughly 50g of carbs.
So to put that rambling together I'll give an example of what happened yesterday and today.
Yesterday: Dec 9
4 units Novorapid bedtime the night before (Dec 8)
8:32 am - Dec 9 - 10.7mmol/L - 2 units with breakfast
10:16 am - Dec 9 - 5.6mmol/L - So I had a glass of orange juice and seemed to be ok then.
Today: Dec 10
5 units Novorapid bedtime the night before (Dec9)
8:41am - Dec 10 - 10.3mmol/L - 2 units with breakfast
I felt like ■■■■ so checked it out of curiousity,
9:19am - Dec 10 - 14.2mmol/L - so I took a unit to bring it down/now it spikes down
9:45am - Dec 10 - 11.1mmol/L
9:58am - Dec 10 - 10.3mmol/L
So now I am going to go low and will need to have some oj again I'd say lol.
It's all really confusing I know, but I'm wondering should I jack the Lantus to like 9 units and just accept the lows after breakfast?
