So to start. I’ve had type 1 since the end of February. Pretty much started on 20 of lantus in the AM, 3 lantus in the PM. I found Dr. Bernstein right of the bat and have been following his plan. I have been using small amounts of lispro with meals (.5-2u) depending. Last 2 a1c’s have been 5.2% and 5% (was 11.1 at diagnosis).
Since mid October I’ve been having more random lows. Needing more sugar tabs. Then after more and more lows and sugar I decided to cut back. I have been reducing lantus daily until today I’ve taking 12 units two days in a row and no nightly lantus either I have completely stopped my lispro. So I’ve basically cut it in half.
Needless to say it has got me completely freaked out! I assume it’s for worse reasons and not something simple as a honeymoon… I guess since it’s 7-8 months after I started insulin I am just freaked out.
Has anyone else out there experienced similar events?
