So, after stopping Victoza I have been having what seems to be some insulin resistance, I’m taking much more insulin now than before I started the Victoza. I also have been having very unpredictable numbers. I can’t see a pattern to them to fix things on my own. Corrections don’t work a lot of the time. I will do a correction and my numbers won’t move, but sometimes I do a correction and it drops me low (this is happening without rhyme or reason as to time of day, activity level, et.c.). So I needed help and got in with my endo’s PA.
I was told that there is nothing he could do because there isn’t a pattern to my numbers and to just leave my pump settings where they are. Then he told me that it really isn’t that bad because his other patients usually run from 300-400 and my numbers (running around 180-200 a lot) aren’t that bad. Then, he called my endo in and she agreed! So, I went in because my numbers were erratic and they can’t do anything because my numbers are erratic. They said nothing about the need for more insulin though I brought it up multiple times, and to top it off, my endo told me to stop doing corrections at night because I might get low. I’ve had one overnight low in the past month! So, if I’m 200 when I go to sleep I’m going to be 200 when I wake up!
The PA wants a weeks worth of pre-meal and pre-bedtime numbers after I showed him my numbers from the past month. I feel like that was a waste of time and now I have to continue to feel sick and tired all the time. I’m at a loss.
