I should preface this by saying that I'm grateful that I have had the same basal since diagnosis 1.5 years ago, and that my total basal is really low (3.6 units/day!). (It is the meal time bolus that I need the most!)
Recently, I got fed up with having too many morning highs and started to change both basal and bolus, with basal going up ~40%. Still testing them, but that is a rough approximation.
I know I am just giving my body what it needs, but it just makes me sad because of my body losing native insulin production. Things have been really stressful at work and I'm hoping that it isn't because of that! That has actually been a motivation to make some life changes since I don't want anything external and temporary (like a job) to adversely affect my health.
So, besides having the empathy that you guys have (unlike friends and family who don't get it), I was wondering how any of you progressed in your insulin needs. Was it a huge spike up, was it gradual?
Thanks for your support..and for totally getting it :-)
