I know someone posted about this, but I searched and did not find it.
I had some major dental stuff and am on high doses of Amoxicylin. I cannot get my BG down. For example:
170 at bedtime; bolused to correct
10:30: 185 bolused 1.3 u to correct
5:30: 184 bolused 1.6 to correct
6:00: set a temp basal of 1 unit per hour, instead of the usual .6
8:30: 193 bolused 1.6 to correct
I have take 4.5 units of correction insulin since bedtime last night and still cannot get the BG down.
I take the amox in the morning (about 7 am) and in the evening (about 8 pm). I am slamming insulin with no effect and am afraid I will completely fall! Is it the drug that is doing this? The trauma of the surgery? The surgical drugs (sedatives)?
Any ideas or suggestions are greatly apprecitated. Thanks.
