Really Bluegill, that is something that should be discussed with your Dr. Dr should give you your target ranges for Blood Glucose (BG) values.

How high has your BG levels been when you first get up from your night time sleep (fasting BG)? What have your BG levels been 2 hrs after you 've taken your first bite of food ("post prandial" BG reading)?

Take your BG logbook to your Dr to review and you can then go over the results together and come to a good idea of if, or what and how much and when to inject insulin.

If you don't keep a log book now, I would recommend that you start keeping one so both of you can determine what is best for your diabetes care.
