Well at last my night time blood sugar is under control… and with the dose the way it is… just 5 units of Novalon, I’m having no through the night lows… Yay!
My main problem now is the daytime… I’m still on the pills, Metformin 1000mg One tab. 2x a day, Glipizide Two 10mg tabs 2x a day and Actos One tab 1x a day. But my blood sugars still shoot up after breakfast into the medium to high 200’s and take forever to come down… they do eventually come down into the high 100’s after taking the tablets before the next meal, but nowhere near as much as they should.
The diabetes educational lady said that if I started with good numbers before breakfast, I should have fairly good numbers through out the day… Ha! that’s laughable… So it looks like I’m going to need more insulin. I think they’re hanging on to that diagnosis of diabetes two…
One thing though, after doing the night time injection, jabbing myself no longer holds any fear… so I know I’ll be ok if I have to do it more often. And what everyone else told me is dead right… it hurts more to test than it does to inject.
Well here’s to the next phase… thank you to all of you who’ve given me help and advice. God bless you all. xxx
