It’s been a while guys and gals!
Hope you’re all well?
Quick fact check for you guys:
HbA1c : 8.5%
Insulin: Humalog Mix 50
Dose: 70 units x 2 per day
So I was wondering if you (or anyone you knew) “ran high”? It’s a new thing to me, I overheard someone saying that many type 2’s “run high” as they age and no matter what they do it doesn’t change.
The reason I ask is because I’m simply unable to regulate my levels in any way, shape or form. The fact is I can eat, starve, exercise, lay in bed all day, do anything you like and my sugar levels do not reduce appropriately.
It is my understanding that 70 units of Humalog Mix 50 is quite substantial, however, I cannot find proof of this anywhere on the great interwebs and it doesn’t matter what my intake of insulin is I simply do not read less than 11.0mmol/L (as a fasting reading upon wake-up) it’s not Hasimoto’s though because I take random readings during the day, before bed, before lunch etc etc and not once in the past 6 months have I read less than 11.0mmol/L at anytime.
My usual bedtime is between 13.9mmol/L and 16mmol/L and if I hit 11mmol/L then I am starving!!! It’s like the equivalent of a low for me!! I get trembly, light headed and so very hangry!!
