Ran out of insulin early this month. Went to the pharmacy to figure out why my meds weren't due and found that since my doctor changed my rates, i've been using more insulin so needed to change the amounts I receive from the pharmacy.
In doing the math to figure out how much insulin I've been using, I've found all in all I'm using about 35-40 units a day. is this normal? I feel like that is a ton of insulin for a pumper.
granted I've been eating more since I've undertaken some home renovations and find I am burning a ton of calories.
Also I have trouble with staying low carb, I feel like I'm hungry all the time. when you have a hectic life it's hard to eat every couple hours. I feel like it's better if I eat a little more carbs so that I can space out meals and snacks. does that make sense?
I am nervous about this total though, is this a crazy amount to you pumping pros?
