I'm getting to the point where I'm not sure what to do, and I am very frustrated.
For the last 6 months or so, it seems I cannot get my morning number under 220, and it feels as though I am becomming a lot less sensitive to insulin. My basals have gone from 24 units per day to 34. My carb ratio has gone from 1:9 to 1:5, and my correction is about 1:30. I'm running 16 units of Levemir at 8 am, and 18 units at 11pm. My basal feels right, as it runs even though out the day. And if I go to bed at at 120, around 3am, I'll still be in that range, but by 7am I'm in the mid 200s.
I've started checking everynight in the middle of the night, but it doesn't seem to help. Its like my body is pumping out sugar to match my insulin intake. I've checked at 5am, it will be 220, 100 points higher than my bed-time number, I'll take 3 units, and at 8am, I'll be 205, as if the 3 units did nothing.
I'm out of ideas. I thought about maybe when I wake in the middle of the night, taking 2 units, and a tablespoon of peanut butter to try and curb the starving aspect.
Anyways, any thoughts?
