I just want to say thanks to all of my friends here on tudiabetes.org, i feel like i recieve more help, information, and sympathy from you guys than from my endo. i think i have depended and managed my insulin routine on the foundation of this website rather than the research i find elsewhere, you guys really are the most helpful resource!!!
the past few months have been so up and down. 2 weeks i have perfect numbers (70-120) the next i am hanging in the 200s, even with full corrections and exercise, and an extremely low carb diet. whats the deal!? i take a lantus pen and apidra. could it be that the pen is less reliable than a vial…maybe i should switch to vials? do pens go bad after 2 weeks…? this is so chaotic, and i am wondering if i should skip out on my upcomming a1c because i feel as if the bad weeks will negate the good ones. Any suggestions?
i work out 3 days a week, an hour of weight training and an hour of cardio, on nice days (which is NEVER in new jersey, i take 3 mile jogs) on good days i benifit from the work outs, on bad days my numbers wont budge.
