I know this is kinda dumb..... but I've been "thinking" lastnight. I've been not using my insulin
because /well.... The dr said my diabetes was my fault. If I would lose weight and exercise I wouldnt
be diabetic at all. I was on Byetta and we switched to Humalog because we knew
that when the insurance ended; I wouldn't be able to afford it. So, I got put on a sliding scale.
The actual problem of being high every morning and able to basically get tight control
all day long after that was never addressed. ( the one thing that I constantly asked about.)
ok. Now, with all the crud going on... yeah..blush... I'm in alot less control. I'm sitting at 160-180
every morning. I'm not eating breakfast; cuz I'm really not hungry. So, I generally eat a piece of fruit around 10 or 11 am instead. Then, we eat lunch around 12:30 to 1:00pm. I normally grab a
flatbread that is high in flax etc and fill it with romaine lettuce, other veggies and sometimes
a bit of turkey or ham.(if we have that.) or the flatbread spread with peanutbutter.
What can I say? I love peanutbutter!:) My number before dinner around 6pm is around 120-150 depending on how late I eat lunch.
Ok so Should I use that insulin? 121-150 2 units,151-180 4 units 181-210 is 6 units etc.. only I haven't seen higher numbers... snicker,probably cuz I don't test at the right time to catch it.
I'm still in the rebellious stage of being diabetic... instead of being mature about this like you all are.
