I take 10 units Lantus at bedtime. Was told it is long-acting. What do I do if sugar is 94-124 before taking it? Didn't take it when bs was at 124 and still went down to 66 during nite. Nurse told me I am better off to eat something to make sugar higher b4 taking insulin since it is going to help regulate numbers throughout next day. OK I get that. But last night bs was 94. not hungry at all so didn't take it. BS was 145 anyway when I woke up. What should I do in that case? Force myself to eat? And what would be the best thing to eat?
