I went to my doctor and we discussed my diabetes. My complaint is the wild flucuation of my numbers. I told him a used 5 or 6 units of Lispro after every meal. He told me that he has patients who use "twenty" units of insulin to react to meals.
He agreed to give me a script for Lantus (slow-acting insulin ) at one dose of twenty units at night. And then he pushed me to consider a pill to counter spikes after meals. I told him I was skeptical.
He gave me a script for Januvia ( DPP-4 inhibitor ). He seemed anxious to have me take it. He gave me a Savings Card for the pill.
He said I can keep the fast-acting Insulin Lispro and use it if need be. I will give it a shot and see if my numbers will behave.
