Since I started my insulin medication a month ago, I did exactly what the doctor told me to: eat a certain amount of carbs, inject a certain amount of insulin units and write down the result of each glucosis check. Everything went pretty good and now almost all the values are between 70 and 110.
I have 40 carbs for breakfast, 100 for lunch, 90 for dinner and 10 at 10 p.m.
One of the things that kind of scares me is that this month I gained 7 kg. At first, I thought it was a good thing as I started from 38, so I was pretty skinny. Now I am not sure about that anymore. It certainly is fine now, but I know the gaining kg thing may not stop at the ideal weight.
I also tried exercising a couple times by riding my bike for like 20km in an hour. As the doctors told me to, I checked my glucosis level, which was in the 70's and then had 10 carbs before beginning. After exercising I just sat and read a book for 30 minutes. Then I checked my glucosis level again as I was going to have dinner and the result was something like 130. Wasn't exercise supposed to enlower my glucosis level?
I would also like to know if there is any chance I can substitute some units of insulin before meal with some exercise? It may sound dumb, but I am looking for alternatives.
