Although I was diagnosed approximately 10 years ago there are times I feel like I don't know anything. So, I have a few questions. I would appreciate any help that anyone can give me. Please don't laugh too much!
Do you plan your meals ahead of time or do you just wing it with each meal? Do you keep a written record of your meals?
Do you test when you first get up or do you wait until you are ready to eat breakfast? If you test when you first get up do you take your correction bolus and then take your bolus to cover carbs when you are ready to eat? I know this seem like a silly question but sometimes I just feel confused!!!!
How do you take care of your insulin during the summer? It has been very, very warm here in So. Cal. I have refused to use my air conditioner yet because it just seems too early, but I worry about what affect the heat has on my insulin. Should I keep it in the frig?
What do you do when you are in a resturant? Do you go to the restroom to test and inject or do you do it at the table? I feel self conscious at the table but most restrooms are so icky that I hate using them period.
My endo told me that I could take my Lantus(I take 20u) at night or in the morning which ever worked best for me. I have been taking it at night. What is the advantage of taking it in the morning?
Well, I guess that is about it for now. .Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
