Hi all, just letting everyone know that I am still having trouble with my blood sugars. I am now taking over 200 units of Insulin five times a day. I went to the doctors thursday and I was put back on metformin with my insulin. I explain to this new doctor that I have had bad experiences with the metformin and I dont want to go through all of the problems again. she said for me to try it and if I get sick stop taking it. She also told me to tell my rheumatologist to take me off of prenisone because of my high numbers. I have RA, Lupus, and Fibro and that is why I take the prednisone. i am so frustrated right now. At dinner time I took my insulin but didn't eat and my blood sugar went down to 49. My husband said that I need to stop taking chances and get help before something serious happens to me. hoping that things get better for me in 2013. Wishing all of you a happy new years.

If you're not gonna eat they normally tell u NOT to take insulin … Ask your doctor about an insulin pump … I think it would be of help to you …
