Hello it is me again with a related question to my last "survey– this time regarding fasting numbers though.
I m a recently diagnosed LADA and so far I m just injecting Bolus-Insulin whenever I eat a carby meal. But since I seem to still be producing some of my own insulin, I am not on any Basal.
MY fasting numbers vary between 80-110, very sometimes I would see a number like 116 or something, on a very lucky day I will wake up with a 75. I would say if I averaged it all out (lately) I would be a "solid 100".
My Endo said he would not consider basal until there is a significant rise in fasting BG overall.
I am wondering if he is correct? I m sure many of you would probably wake up with numbers quite a bit lower than that?
I have to admit trying to postpone basal for as long as possible sounds very tempting to me, on the other hand I wonder if maybe getting into the basal regime some time soon would maybe be good– would that even be possible with very small insulin requirements like I have?
I appreciate any feedback!
