I am wondering how many of you out there are on a sliding scale? I was just placed on Novolog insulin along with my basal insulin Levemir. Or how many of you just do the insulin to carbs ratio? I am very interested to find out.
The sliding scale is not always best since my blood sugar isn't always high before the meals I eat, but spikes afterwards. I have found out that by adding up my total carbohydrates per meal and injecting one unit of Novolog for every 15 carbs works the best, and then I don't have the 180-250 spikes.
Write back and let me know which method you prefer for injecting your fast-acting insulin.
Waiting to hear!
