Delete Comment Hello from a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic. =)
Currently, I take 20 units of Lantus and was lowered to 3 units of Humalog/meal today after having normal to low readings the past 3 days. I do have Humulin R to use as my sliding scale on an as needed basis.
I currently inject with syringes, although when I was first diagnosed, I was told I was a good candidate for a pump.
My doc discussed with me today the possibility of eventually coming off of insulin and being able to go back to pills, provided I continue my current readings, diet and exercise regimen. Woohoo!
IF? you are a true type-1, you DO NOT make ANY natural insulin and REQUIRE insulin.......PERIOD end of story...that is MY understanding anyhooooo
