Started this discussion. Last reply by gayler Apr 24, 2013. 3 Replies

I got a shot in the shoulder, and was told my sugar could go up to 500. After a week or so I called my doc and asked and was told it should return in one week. It's two almost three weeks and I'm…Continue

So, how many of you have to charge the ratio at bed time? I have noticed that if I have a snack at bed time my sugar is high in the morning. The larger the snack the higher my sugar. If I have no…Continue

"Thanks guys! I was starting to worry. The first week I had to run at 200% basal to stay anywhere near normal."

How long should it take to return to "Normal" after a steroid shot?

I got a shot in the shoulder, and was told my sugar could go up to 500. After a week or so I called my doc and asked and was told it should return in one week. It's two almost three weeks and I'm still running my basal rate at 140%. Normally this time of year I start running low and have to ajust to keep it up. I just wondered if this is from the shot or if I'm becoming resistant or omething else.See More

Clare replied to gayler's discussion 'insulin to carb ratio'
"Since my I:C ratio is only a few months old, I find it useful to get some advice from the CDE who gave me the ratio in the first place. I'm not confident enough yet to make changes on my own. I don't snack much either, but bedtime would…"

Zoe replied to gayler's discussion 'insulin to carb ratio'
"Same here; I change my I:C ratios once in a blue moon (unlike my basals which I tweak periodically). I keep paper logs and each page is 3 weeks. At the end of the page I look at my numbers to see if there are enough out of range numbers to warrant a…"
