I went with my mom to her first endocrinologist appt. Her issue is her sugars are in the 300 + she is on the insulin pen,. The endocrinologist said the insulin she's on now get's used over night & just helps regulate. and added fast acting insulin to take before meals,(so she won't drop too low), it's only been her first day but her numbers are actually 20 points higher.
he gave her a sliding scale to start next week on adding more fast acting based on numbers, but why wouldn't insulin work. my mom is very strict with her diet,because she wants to get these number down, so I'm not sure. Mom did ask me if Spinach is a problem for people on insulin, she's been eating spinach salads & adding some protein to them.
Anyone have problems with insulin not dropping numbers?
