A little background info...
I was on Lantus and Humolog a few months ago, and that seemed to be working ok for me. 10-15 units before meals and I was ok. But my new endo switched me from humolog to apidra and I find that I take 30 units and my GLs are still sky high. I was charting it for a while and found that with a gl of 173 before breakfast, I took 30 units of apidra, ate a hard boiled egg and a bagel and my GL went UP to 385. WHAT?!? This just seems outrageous.
I get very frustrated and give up. Apidra just does not seem to be working for me. One night I got so angry I just decided to take as much apidra as it would take to lower my level into the normal range. So before dinner I took 30 units and ate a salad. Lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, and ranch..THATS ALL I ATE. It took me 60 units to get my level into 118. This just dosn't seem right. And I'm frustrated.
Is any one else having problems with apidra? Is anyone having success with Apidra? *rips hair out*
I have an endo appointment on thursday btw.
