I had 8.1 A1C and high BS up to 290.
Doctor increased 12 Lantus to 15 and added 4 units Novolog 4 before meals. Low 62 before dinner last night so I drank 1/2 can pepsi.
think I was better off without novolog.
This morning 84.feel bit shaky. Ate tiny apple..special k protein ..6 with cream.
I don't know how to control it anymore.
Friend told me to adjust Novolog based on BS before meals. Use 1 to 4 units
Any advice is welcome.calling doctor today

Like Kim said, if you are used to having high BG, your body will take a while to get used to having normal BG. 84 is perfect. You had a good breakfast. Keep up the good work. Talking to your doctor is a good idea if you ever have questions. Best of health. Heidi

84 is good bs its where you want to b. U will feel shaky like a low cuz your body is used to high bs. Body wlil adjust to the normal bs. What is ur insulin to care ratio? That may need to be adjusted.
