First let me start by saying that technically I’m a “surgical” diabetic not a Type 1, but basically the treatment is the same. I still have a little bit of my pancreas left that makes insulin, but not very much. I have been diabetic for about a year and a half now and initially started out on a very low carb diet because I thought that was what I had to do. Since then I’ve learned that I still need to eat carbs to get balanced nutrition, plus I was going insane eating only meat and cheese every day. For my coverage shots, I’ve settled on 1 unit of insulin for approx. every 10 grams of carbs. I have found that if I get the carb count right, I can pretty much eat whatever I want and still have my BG level back down to 100-125 1.5 hours after I eat. There are times now where a single meal might be 100-150 carbs. My question is, am I playing russian roulette with my diabetes right now and setting myself up for trouble later on, or is it ok to take 25-30 units of coverage insulin in a day as long as my numbers are good. My last A1C was 5.5 and I do also take 23 units of Lantus each day as well. In addition, I’m not “overdoseing” as I have not had a hypoglycemic episode in months.
