I have been very discouraged as of late with my BG readings. I left my insulin home by accident when i went to my daughters recently. guess what? My numbers are about the same whether I inject or not. this is discouraging enough that I don't even want to bother testing my sugar levels. As long as i eat fairly well my sugar levels don't vary much, usually in the high 200's low 300's. My doctor says he wants me to test more frequently. I say why bother? If the insulin isn't making much of a difference, why inject it into my body? Example: the other week my morning BG was 340. My normal injection for the AM is 60 units of 70/30. I also have R (fast acting) which is suppose to be injeted in units of 1-5 according to the RX. Out of curiosity, I injected 60 units of R, knowing i needed to watch it closely. After 2 hours my BG was 290. Never dropped below 175. Frustrated, discouraged and ????
