i am not able to manage my diabetes... its reaches 258 at night... i exercise like a bull gone wild for 30 to 40 minutes after which it comes to around 200 , 106 in morning at 7, 150 after walk :(n moreover its 309 after breakfast even after taking 35 units(human mixtard 30/70)....though i jst hve 1 chapati wth a cup of milk :( tht to without adding any flavour to it:(.....
ok... thanx a lot... :)
Also, someone should mention no surprise that chapati(starch) + milk(lactose) will push you BG up very high.
thanx a lot...... i will try this and post my new controlled BG report soon...:)
but what about soyabean milk.... and just one small cup of it twice a day....
also according to indian mothers chapati is a must..... as rice will again increse my BG......one more restriction on my diet... :(
okz thanx a lot... :)))))))
I agree that changing to plain NPH and plain R that you can mix at whatever ratios you want will probably get better results, but I also think it's worthwhile to see what can be done with the insulin you've got.
First thing, with the doses you're using the food isn't matching. It sounds like you need to eat a different breakfast or take more insulin. You could either eat less breakfast or something lower carb or take more regular in the morning. Me, I think I'd simply eat less breakfast (maybe the milk without the chapati) and eat a bigger lunch (add the chapati to lunch).
Getting good overnight numbers with NPH can be a struggle but if they're mostly high, just increase the dose. The issue tends to be that they go low and high so it isn't safe to increase the dose without also adding a snack at some point... if that's the case, add the snack.
Can I assume you're taking insulin twice per day?
I think I recall doing okay with 70/30 for a little while, taking it 3 x / day.
but taking it three times sometimes leads my BG to around 50 at night..... i will surely try this again but with different units... thanx.. :)
