I am new to the DC community. I am learning so much already! I was diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Resistance in August 2013.
My insulin levels are quite high …151 at my last blood draw a few weeks ago. My A1C is 6.3. I take a low dose (20 units) of Levemir daily. I don't undstand why I am taking insulin if my insulin levels are already too high. I asked my Dr and she changed the subject. I asked my health coach and she said I needed the extra insulin to help push sugar into the cells. But everything I have read leads me to think high insulin levels are very dangerous. I just can't get my head wrapped around this. Does anyone have have a good explaination?
