I am at a crosspoint here folks!
I have been going a bit low despite the lack of exercise I am doing.
I have recently sorta switched to an Atkins Induction diet (but with ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS)
I barely take any Novo Rapid insulin. (In fact, I had to throw away 3/4 of my vial last month.
I am waking up with BG of 125 in the morning, but I am going down to >75 during the day. If I test at that level, I am hesistant to take the 1 unit of Novo Rapid. I am mostly afraid of going hypo.
I feel the blood sugar crash, but when I test, I am coming up at 75, maybe 80.
I don’t have an endo yet, the waiting list is attrocious…
And I can’t get a pen that has half units, so I am stuck taking full units.
Here are my numbers:
Levemir ~20 u before bedtime. (If I go low in the morning, I lower it by 2 units, if I am high in the morning, I up it by 2 units.)
Novorapid with each meal, with the carb ratios like so:
B: 6:1, L: 7:1, D 8:1 (I am guessing that means at breakfast I am taking 1 unit for 6 g carbs and so on…)
What do you all think of this?
