Hi guys, I've had T1D for about two and a half years now and have noticed some strange changes with my insulin. I have been taking Novorapid during the day and Lantus before I go to bed. Initially I was on 10units of latus and about 4-7units of Novo depending on the meal size. I was about 115lb back then, and over the last few years growing up etc.. I went to about 230bs at 19yrs old. My doses have also significantly increased with this, Lantus went to about 50+ per night, and Novorapid anywhere from 18-30units per meal.
I dieted down to 205lbs which is what I'm currently maintaining but my doses have changed accordingly. I am now currently on about 30 lantus and about 16-24 Novorapid for my meals. I eat about 3/4 times a day, wish I could spread it out more but I'm busy with college and work. I also often drink lucozade to bring up any hypo's I get which is every day or two. I know all that sugar isn't good for me or my teeth. Are there any other remedies any of ye more mature diabetics maybe able to recommend?
Anyway, I was just wondering if these changes I've made myself to my doses are 'safe' or expected with such a change over the past few years.. just curious, any help would be appreciated. Don't worry my readings are mostly fine and my A1C was 5.1 last time I got it checked so I don't really think there is much to worry about there, it's just the deal with having to adjust dosages frequently enough is whats bugging me.
