my a1c went up almost a whole point because i didnt want to admit i was more diabetic than before. since i got those results last month ive finally added some more insulin to my tdd, adding a unit of levemir in the am and another 2 in the evening. i added those instead of the fast acting because of big fat numbers in the morning and because i was seeing some random highs throughout the day, like fasting ones, before lunch, dinner, whenever it felt like being contrary.
the extra 2 pm units are working awesome, i wake up in the 90s. the extra day unit is working well too. in the 80s and 90s before lunch and dinner. between meals i am eating snacks or g tabs or id be low.
the only thing im not sure about is the fact that im now only taking one unit of fast acting at breakfast. dont need any more. my job starts jut after lunch and i cycle there (30 minutes) so im at 120/130 when i get there and then i walk home (1 hour) or cycle to get home for dinner. if i took a unit before lunch i would definitely bottom out on after my 30 min ride to work.
ive read everywhere that it should be kind of even. is there a problem doing it this way? i like the levemir, much less low inducing than the fast acting, or so it seems.
does anyone else have a tdd like this?
