hello! so I have been a diabetic 1 for only 6 months now and I am on a small dose of Lantus each morning.. I take only 11 units if Lantus in the morning and no other insulin with my meals. I find that after I eat a meal usually around 45 carbs or less that my sugar spikes to 200+ and stays there for At least 3 hours before it slowly makes it way back down to 150 ish... but at other times my Lantus does the job and my sugars stay down after I eat. is it what I am eating or does this just sometimes happen?
does anyone feel like I should be adding my mealtime insulin in so that my sugars do not sky rocket and stay that way for a long period? my Dr did OK me to start using if my sugars stayed this way but I'm just not sure I need it yet.
the one time i tried it before I ate my sugar was 145 and I had eaten a small sandwich with 1 unit Lantus and my sugar dropped rather low about 2 hours after. are u suppose to snack again an hour after your meal?
Thanks for taking the time to help so please help :-)
