I’m hoping someone can explain what is going on right now…
I am currently 32 weeks pregnant with my first child and have had Type 1 Diabetes since October of 2009. My A1C throughout the pregnancy has been between 5.7 and 6.5 so I have tight control of my sugars. I see my Endo every three weeks and communicate with him often through e-mail/phone. Lately, we have been changing my insulin doses every few days it seems. My scale without pregnancy was 1 unit of insulin for everyone 10 carbs I eat. With pregnancy I am currently at a scale of 1 unit for every 2 carbs. It has changed DRAMATICALLY but I have been told over and over that this is normal in pregnancy and once I have my son I will go right back to my old scale.
My problem now is that for the past 3 days I have barely taken any of my fast acting insulin (novolog) … just my long lasting (lantus). It’s like I all of a sudden don’t need insulin or something and I keep having lows. I am very concerned and confused. My diet has not changed at all. For a meal that I usually would take 30 units for I’m taking none and my blood sugar is 78 two hours later.
What is going on?!?! Is anything wrong with my pregnancy?? Should I be concerned?? Has any one every experienced this before?!?!
