Just started symlin 4 days ago... started with 15 mcg for 3 days and today started 30 mcg's... I get better control with insulin alone... less spikes.
Symlin feels great to take and the fullness is wonderful but no matter what so far.. there is a rise in BS about 80 points.... if starting BS is 83... 1/2 hr later the BS is111 and another half hour the BS is132 then up to 164 even with insulin taken in increments before the meal... 1/2 hr after the meal and one hour after the meal. MORE insulin is needed than without symlin and the insulin doesn't even seem to work until 3-4 hours to come down!! HELP!!!! Today only ate 20 carbs and gave 0.6 units before ate, and 0.5 units one hour after eating.
ANY suggestions greatly appreciated.
