I found out not long ago that my insurance is now covering the CGM. I am now using it and so far I'm liking it. It is a little more complicated to learn than the pump but Im getting there.
Is there anybody else who is new to using the CGM? Please let me know how you like it.
I just started using Humalog and didn't really get any instruction on how to use it. I wasn't told to use it before meals or after. I was given a slide scale on the units to use. 0 to150-0 units, 151 to 250 3 units and so on. When I got done eating dinner tonight I took 3 units of Humalog and two hours after eating did my sugar and it was 199, OK, something is wrong here. What can I do or am I doing something wrong.
I know that I may need to add another type of insulin to gain control of my after meal #'s. I have been researching Humalog and think that this may be the one to talk to my doctor about. Right now I'm on Lantus and Glucotrol XL. Can Lantus be used with Humalog?
