Hi! I'm Hannah. I've been a diabetic for 9 years now. I was dx when I was 11 and started the pump at age 12. I hardly remember anything about the shots and I wasn't offered pens back then.
Anyways, after 8 years of being spoiled with an insulin pump my insurance decides that it is a "luxury" and will no longer cover my supplies. I am appealing this, but in the mean time I have been switched from the minimed pump to lantus and humalog.
I was just wondering if anyone has been through this and has any tips? I seem to need way more humalog with meals than I did on the pump. Also, when is the best time to take the lantus? My doc was kinda just like "well here ya go! Have at it!".
This morning my fasting was 114 and my two hour post prandial was 313! I never get number that high and I count my carbs very well!
I'm just so lost because my blood sugars are usually PERFECT! My last a1c was 5.1 and I've never had anything over 6.0.
I guess this is more of a ramble than anything, but if anyone has any tips please let me know! : )
