My work shift is from 4p-4a
I’m 5’10"" 190lbs
My current meds are Lantus and Novolog Clear
Everday at 430am I take 12units of Lantus
When I decide to eat, I take 1 unit of Novolog for every 12g of carbs
Due to my fast metabolism and active lifestyle,My carb count is usually between 70-120 carbs per meal. I must eat this many carbs to avoid snacking in between.
I eat approximately 3-4 times per day. (4-5 hours apart)
My BG maintains between 90-137 mg/dl
I must say that the Lantus and Novolog Clear is probably a great alternative to people that don’t want or can’t afford the pump. I thought about getting the pump at first. Unfortunately it would be to cumbersome to wear it on my uniform.
I feel great and more in control using the carb counting method as opposed to my initial treatment of novolog 70/30. 70/30 is ok but it forces you to eat at certain times.
