I have just started on insulin and that in itself makes me feel like a failure. I have taken the highest dose of metformin for a year now and still take it with the addition of insulin. I am only up to 12 units but still my morning blood glucose is over 140. I feel stupid here. When at bedtime is the best for taking the insulin? After my night time snack? What is the best snacks or should I just avoid eating after dinner all together? My bg has been out of control for some time now. Exercise is pretty much out of the question because of physical issues so I really have to rely on diet. When I think I am doing everything right, my numbers dont reflect that. Do I need to relax and continue uping the insulin every couple of days (dr ordered this going up to 30 units) until the numbers are under control? Any suggestions?
