I have recently started seeing and Endo, and she wants me to send my blood sugars in every week so they can adjust my insulin doses accordingly. I have been doing this for the past 5 weeks now and EVERY week she lowers my insulin doses. I am very paranoid about high blood sugars and since she started lowering doses my sugars have begun creeping up.
She is very concerned about my basal insulin and has lowered it from 12u to 4u now over the past 5 weeks. She says that my bg should remain stable between meals without snacking. My 2hour post meal b/g are usually between 150 and 180- but then 4 hours after they tank to 70's, even with only 4u Lantus. But at night my blood sugar steadily rises and falls between 80 and 120. I lead a very active lifestyle and I feel very strongly that the reason my sugars tanks 4 hours after eating is because I am so active that I drive my sugar that low. If she keeps lowering my basal rate then my b/g is gonna shoot up.
Additionally, she changes everything so frequently and so fast that I do not think my body has time to adjust, I know mentally I don't have the time to adjust my diet and figure out when to eat how much and what type of food before she changes it again. It's wrecking havoc on my life and my emotions and making my doubt whether or not they are going to approve my insulin pump.
I chose to go to the Endo because I thought I wasn't getting the care I needed, now I am frustrated and feel like it's not even worth taking 4u units. I just want this all sorted out and I am tired of constantly having to change EVERYTHING EVERY week sometimes 2-3 times a week. I just don't know what to do. Sorry for ranting but I don't know where else I can vent that it might be helpful.
