For about 5 months I've taken no more than 40 units of Humulin 70/30 in the morning and 35 units at night. Last week though, I've taken 70 units night and morning and am not seeing a big change in my numbers anymore.
My doctor has me on a sliding scale and lets me determine how much insulin to take based on what my numbers are.
I know taking this much with little to no effect is enough to schedule an appointment, which I plan to do next week, but I'm curious has anyone else experienced anything like this? And is it normal for a doctor to let you determine how much insulin to take based on what you will eat that day (morning dose) and your current blood sugar results? I record my results and how much insulin i take each day in Excel and print that out for my doctor every 3 months, so she can see how much insulin is used and what my BD levels normally are running.
Before last week, i knew that taking 40 units would reduce my BS by 100. and so on, but right now I have no clue because taking 70 units won't change it by more than 2-3.
