I have a question…
I’m at a point now where changing my meals & mealtime insulin are really keeping me at pretty decent numbers (I still have some one hour post-meal numbers that are like 150-170 and that’s frustrating, but it seems to be going down as the insulin gets worked out)
No matter how much insulin I take at night–it seems like my morning (fasting) number is never anywhere close. OFTEN, I have something like 140 when I wake up. The internist keeps giving me more insulin at night (now taking 70 units of humulinN (I have no idea if I’m spelling that right) and waking up with a 120-140 almost every day. This seems regardless of whether I have a snack, don’t have a snack, or what the snack is. It also happens if my after dinner number is like 90.
Are there any ideas out there on how to bring this down? Time of night? Place to give the shot? Anything? It seems the internist’s answer is just always to raise the insulin dose–but it seems so illogical because the numbers are not even budged by that insulin right now.
Thanks for any thoughts!
