I only check one time a day. My sugar was 108 this morning. Some days I do check after a meal just to see what it is, but the dr told me to check every morning. Do have great insurance, pays for everything:)

caspersmama 2008-11-12 13:50:49 -0600 Report

Ok my numbers so far today. Woke up 97 had a low of 79 during the night. Which is low for me. Had some peanut butter brought it back up. after breakfast of tomato soup and asiago cheese croutons was 139. then before lunch 120 after 149. do not know what I am having for dinner. going out maybe Logans they have 2 dinners for 13.99 from 3-6 everyday. Then starting shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. Things that are not perishable. Will cream cheese keep for 2 weeks (the bar kind). will let you know dinner numbers later.

highlandcitygirl 2008-11-11 19:05:02 -0600 Report

november 11 woke up with 126 i test once a day.

sexyswamprat 2008-11-12 09:43:26 -0600 Report

How come you test only once a day?

highlandcitygirl 2008-11-12 11:20:30 -0600 Report

thats all the doctor said to, but its been steadily going up and i think i will need to test more. the strips cost so much! but i'll do what i have to do.

sexyswamprat 2008-11-12 15:47:28 -0600 Report

Do you have insurance? My doctor wrote me a perscription for my test strips. With my insurance I pay 20$ for a box of 100. It test at least 4 times a day. Thirty minutes b 4 I eat and 2 hours after.

highlandcitygirl 2008-11-12 16:50:43 -0600 Report

thank you, i do have insurance i didn't know a dr. could write a presciption for the strips. and i had no idea when and how many times to test.

sexyswamprat 2008-11-12 18:59:17 -0600 Report

I would check with your insurance company and make sure they cover them, and find out how much they would be. I didn't insurance would cover them either. It just hit me one day when I couldn't afford the strips. I called them the next day and sure enough. I was so happy. Of course it's always better to pay 20 for 100 than 98 for 100.

caspersmama 2008-11-14 09:01:31 -0600 Report

My insurance pays for everything. the strips, lancets, and alcohol swaps. But the swaps are cheaper at wal mart for the equate brand than my co pay. But if you do not ask you will not know who pays for what. LOL

Novolog sliding scale with each meal

vgarrison 2008-11-11 20:34:55 -0600 Report


If you dont mind me asking what kind of sliding scale are you on for the Novolog. I just got switched to Novolog today with a new doctor and he has me on a sliding scale but not to take any if my BG is below 179…that just doesnt make sense to me…


patti 2008-11-12 08:07:23 -0600 Report

if I am 70 - 100 I take 2 units, then 1 unit for every 15 grams of carbs. I take 20 units of Levemier at night. My diet is very different from yours…I dont eat any wheat products, anything with eggs, sugar, or nuts. And everything is fresh because of allergies to preservatives and food coloring. All of my meat is certified to be hormone free and I have to get turkey and chicken from the butcher. I cant have the additives they put in the meat. If he is starting you at nothing under 179 it is probably to see how you react to the insulin. I would keep a log of food excercise, and drinks and how much insulin for at least a week then call him/her with your numbers. Good luck to you!

Great numbers today.

enigmalady777 2008-11-11 21:35:03 -0600 Report

Thanks. They are much improved over what they were just over a month ago! I was seldom under 195 first thing in the morning, after meals were in the 200's and before meals ranged from 125-150. The insulin has made a huge difference, along with watching my carbs.

tchong 2008-11-11 16:04:14 -0600 Report

I Cant really control my numbers im on Novalin 20 units in the morning and 14 units at nite.

Waking up 204
last nite 290

sexyswamprat 2008-11-11 16:06:13 -0600 Report

I don't take insulin so I'm not all that up on how it works. But I am concerned about you. Have you talked to your doctor about you numbers? Don't forget, we have all had high numbers.

enigmalady777 2008-11-11 16:09:18 -0600 Report

Which Novolin are you taking?

I take Lantus 38 units at night and Novolin R at mealtimes (using a insulin to carb ratio of 1:5). It's working well for me except those rare occasions where I boneheadedly miscalculate how many carbs I'm going to eat and then I either take too much or too little insulin.

You may want to discuss a different routine with your doctor. I had to push the issue with mine - otherwise she'd probably have only perscribed Lantus alone, or Novolin N alone which would have essentially done nothing for my bg levels.

tchong 2008-11-14 02:38:57 -0600 Report

well its insulin novolin its a long acting insulin so it takes a while for it to start working the doctor calls me every week to see how its doing if I should up it. so we have, now I take 25units in the morning and 20 units before dinner but this morning was the first time it was below 200 fasting.

tchong 2008-11-14 02:34:04 -0600 Report

Yeah Im dealing with my doc she knows my numbers..its going down this morning it was 188 slowly by slowly its going down

enigmalady777 2008-11-15 12:53:40 -0600 Report

Sounds like it's the Novolin N which is an intermediate insulin.

I was running in the 160-195 range for fasting blood sugars prior to adding the Novolin R. Once I added the regular insulin to the long acting Lantus, that's when I was finally able to get those stubborn fasting blood sugars down to the 95-120 range.

vgarrison 2008-11-11 15:45:21 -0600 Report

I just went to a new doctor, and got put on new meds…will start posting tomorrow…

I hope everyone does realise that not everyone is going to have the same numbers…a number that is great for one person might not be that great for someone else…so if you want to post then I say post and dont worry, no one here will judge another person…

Blessed Be

I went to the doctor yesterday and got the results of my a1c since I started taking the metformin. My a1c is still 5.6 averaging 99. And I lost 13 lbs in 5 weeks. So my doctor and I believe that my weight gain was from the glipized. But wow, 13 lbs. I felt like I was losing weight but you just have to know for sure. Everyone have a great night.


BarryE 2008-11-10 20:22:49 -0600 Report

My info for today is:

Type 1
Diagnosed 5/22/08 at 38 yrs old.
A1C at Diagnosis: 13%
Last A1C (October 08) 8.5%

Metoprolol, Gabapentin, Citalopram, Simvastatin and Lisinopril

Lantus 22u nightly
Novolog 8u Breakfast, 4u Lunch, 10u Supper

Wish I was on a sliding scale :(

Before Breakfast: 139 mg/dL
After Breakfast: 127 mg/dL

After Lunch: 116 mg/dL

Before Supper: 144 mg/dL
After Supper: 142 mg/dL

this is better than I've been in a few days. I haven't been feeling that well.

Jlynn 2008-11-13 10:38:23 -0600 Report

I was just going to comment on sliding scale…i have just started it, still learning, yet it has helped me so old doctor never put me on anything and at times id be at 300,before a meal and eat w/out a shot and it would of course go higher …
now the diabetes wellness center taught me the sliding scale and put me on novolog(pen) and lantus. I take 1 unit of the novolog per every 50 im over 120, plus count what im going to eat and add it to the dose..It has helped those far..Every Doctor has their own.."Best -Prescription"

enigmalady777 2008-11-10 19:43:14 -0600 Report

I track my info daily on SugarStats. Here's today's info so far:
I take Lantus 38 units at night, Novolin R at mealtimes, metformin 850 3 times a day and one glyburide pill.

November 10, 2008
123 Waking Up 7:15 AM
71 Low Sugar at 11:00 am
116 Before Lunch at 11:45 am
96 After Lunch at 2:30 pm
150 After Snack at 5:12 pm
119 before dinner at 6:00 pm
136 after dinner at 8:30 pm

The 71 was too low - I had to correct for it by taking glucose tablets - I was shaking really really bad. I made the mistake of taking my glyburide tablet in the morning instead of after dinner - I thought since my fasting bg was a little higher than usual that it would be better to take it in the am. Bad idea.

Doctor told me to taper off on the glyburide anyway, so soon I will probably be able to stop taking it all together.

Bekime 2008-11-10 19:33:41 -0600 Report

Hey! I am still (after 2 years) trying to get a handle on my numbers!!!
