I am constantly ever changing my basal insulin dose. I thought that once you found your correct dosage that it would not change. My rapid acting insulin changes from day to day, so it is hard to find out what my total daily dose is. I use MDI and I am struggling with this.

Hello there! I am a type two and using a insulin pump. What i have learned is that we're gonna have to change our basal amounts from time to time. I would consult your doctor and see if there is something more that needs to be done. I do know this much, that our daily dose is never gonna match up. when you factor in your bolus's and room for other issues. It never adds up.
