I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a week and a half ago. I have no insurance and am currently filing for disability for another reason. Since I've been diagnosed, my blood glucose readings have been hanging around 4 and 5 hundred. I know this is high and my doctor prescribed insulin (Novelog three times daily 5 units right before meals, and Levemir 8 units at bedtime). I take my readings three times daily between meals. I was suppose to report my readings to him yesterday over the phone, but he didn't return neither of my three calls. I don't know what to do. Lack of insurance is a factor and the clinic is for low income patients like myself. Can anyone suggest something?
