I was given NovoLog for the first time yesterday by my doctor for use. He told me use 5 units at mealtime. Just before dinner last night, I did the 5. We had burritos (I use whole wheat tortillas). I had two burritos. 2 hours after dinner, my sugar level was 142. This morning also, I had the 5 units and then had Kellogg’s FiberPlus Antioxidants Berry Yogurt Crunch 1 cup with milk -cal 210 -total carbs 43 -Fiber 10 -soluble fiber 4 -insoluble 6. 2 hours after breakfast my sugar level was 268. Should I be taking more of the NovoLog? How do I know how much to take with each meal to counter the raise in sugar level? Can someone give me some type of formula to go by? Also, After I have tested (2 hrs after my meal), if my sugar level is high, can I take a little more of the NovoLog?
