I was diagnosed as Type 2 non-insulin dependent over 25 years ago. Through those years I have had times that I was very on track with my management and times I was off track. Recently, my team of physicians has decided that with all my diagnoses taken into consideration and the current state of my overall health, I needed to cease working and apply for disability. This is currently in process. This brings me to my current question. I have, since no longer working, had an opportunity to focus on my health management. for several years I have taken Humalog and Lantus. My problem is that I am experiencing a lot of super lows and super highs. I have been instructed to start taking my Humalog on a sliding scale, rather than a fixed dose, according to my blood sugar reading and my carbohydrate count for my meal. I need to have the "Rule of 1500" explained to me so that I can start calculating my Humalog dosage. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
