I havent been on Diabetic connect for some time. Nor have I been taking very good care of my diabetes. I have, with a little help, rekindled my desire to get and remain healthy. I have gone back to the doctors, got new prescriptions for my insulin and my hypertension medication (PB 165/123 yikes) have only been taking my insulin again for about 24 hours. (Lantus and Novalog) my BG was at 475 when I left the doctors office and after 2 20 unit novalog injections and one 80 unit lantus I am glad to say that my BG has gone down to 275. Here is the problem… Had a good breakfast 3 eggs and two slices of 5net carb bread. Before breakfast my levels were 275 and I shot 20 Units of insulin… two hours after breakfast my glucose levels are 275. I thought how can this be… there must be something wrong with my meter. So, I had my girlfriend check hers… 118, Ok so its not the meter.. it must be me. I cant figure it out… any help tips or suggestions would be appreciated… I have decided that I want to live and if I cant beat this damn disease then I want to at least be able to wrestle it to the damn ground and kick its rear end. The only different thing I have added to my diet is Powerade zero… has zero calories and zero carbs… sweetened with sucralose (splenda) and shouldn't affect my glucose. However here I am… better than 475 but 275 can and will still be the death of me. I have another dr appt this coming friday and bloodwork scheduled on Monday morning (fasting) Wish me luck… any suggestions how to get my levels down at least into the 100s? Please help.
