I had gastric bypass surgury on the 27th of Feb. So far I have lost about 35 lbs but my sugars are still high. They have me on a sliding scale starting at 164-194 is 1 unit, 195-224 is 2 units,225-254 is e units, 255-284 is 4 units. Finally my dr put me on lantis . Right now i am up to 17 units increasing by one unit every other day until I get my morning sugar down to 150.
This hasn't happened yet and my sugars during the day are in the mid to upper 200. I don't get that much to eat because my stomach is about the size of an egg and I have to eat about 2oz of protein at each meal and then a couple of spoonfuls of a veg. Then carbohydrate if I can. I find I can't eat all of the food and try to split it up into several meals but my sugar is still high.
My endo isn't concerned. He is waiting for more weight to come off but I am concerned about what the sugar is doing to me. Any ideas?
