The other day I was wondering about this. My doctor has me on a long lasting insulin that I take every 12 hours or so. It works okay, but my thing is while I have insulin floating around in my body all day, even when I am not eating anything, isn't it just counter productive to my goal of increasing my insulin sensitivity?
Would a fast acting insulin be a better option to take just as i eat, as my body would do naturally (well as close as I can manually get it) That way the insulin deals with my food and is gone.
I also see many of you take both a long lasting and a fast acting. Why is that? What is the benefit of doing that? I just don't really understand. Our bodies don't naturally secrete insulin for no reason.
My days of late have been filled with a myriad of odd questions…this was just one. What do you think?
