22 units daily.
stopped smoking and BS is high, 200's.?
was below 130.
going on a month now, smoking.
My 6 year old T1 gets around 7 units every night at dinnertime. I am constantly making tiny adjustments to the amount. She needs a little more when she's been exercising a lot, and less when her activity level goes down for more than a day. Her Lantus dose sometimes needs to change for no reason at all. Or at least none that I can figure out.
I am on 18 units of Lantus at bedtime.
Then I take Novolog before meals, based on my carb intake.
My daily Novolog usually totals around 25 units.
I have been T1 for almost 37 years.
Started 21 May 2012. Currently 20u.
30 units split 20 a.m., 10 p.m.
I used to split my doses and take the Lantus 13 U am and 13 U pm, but now I take 26 U pm. I also take preprandial doses of Humalog, adjusted to the carbs I'm eating (usually 6 - 8). I was reading an article by some diabetes guru and he was talking about how doses over 7 U (of any type of insulin) were "enormous". That made my roll my eyes! :)
