"I am T1 since Nov 2012, had more than 13 in Ac1 back then. Now it was 5.6. I have around 22 TDD, but I am on NPH, hope the number will go down on Levemir ;)"

"I use approximately 34, 22 Long acting, average the bolus' out some more some less. I do use more during a lupus flare, seems to cause IR then passes, unfortunately it doesn't warn me when it decides to stop. I do follow the low…"

"You for instance taking 17 units per day are very insulin sensitive. The more insulin resistant you are the more insulin you need. (Allowing of course, as you say, for carbs, so a high basal is also indicative of insulin resistance."

Zoe replied to Beedubs's discussion 'How much insulin do you use daily?'
"Yes, 98 units a day (especially in a Type 1) does indicate Insulin Reistence."

Beedubs replied to Beedubs's discussion 'How much insulin do you use daily?'
"Yes, thanks Sarah. My I:C ratio is 1:5, and my basal is about 68 units a day. I eat about 80-90 carbs a day, and still end up doing a lot of corrections which extra boluses and basals don't seem to be helping. I also am active and go to the gym…"

Sarah replied to Beedubs's discussion 'How much insulin do you use daily?'
"but your TDD doesn't really indicate insulin resistance. you didn't indicate if you're eating high carb, etc...what your basal rate is, what your ICR is? you could be eating 100 carbs/meal which could account for your TDD. also doing…"

Brian Wittman replied to Beedubs's discussion 'How much insulin do you use daily?'
"I use about 45-55 units per day. I take my insulin through a pump, so it goes according to what I eat. I try to stay on a low carb/high protein intake, so I don't need so much. If I ate a normal non-diabetic diet, I would probably require…"

"Thank you all so much for your responses! I will be talking to my endo next visit (in April) about insulin resistance. It is so interesting to see how different everyone is, I really like to hear what other people do to manage their diabetes."

TheTurtleMoves replied to Beedubs's discussion 'How much insulin do you use daily?'
"Background: 20-30 units This varies depending on my carb intake. More carbs = more resistance = more insulin. Breakfast: 10-14 units I have high resistance in the morning and need this much to handle a breakfast of 2 eggs, 1 piece of toast w/peanut…"

Sarah replied to Beedubs's discussion 'How much insulin do you use daily?'
"looks like i'll be using about 16 - 17 units per day when i go on pump tomorrow. depends, of course, how many corrections we're doing and how much we eat."
