As I read the posts I get more and more confused. When I was initially diagnosed I was put on metformin and worked up to 1000mg 2x daily. In August I landed in the hospital and taken off the metformin and sent home on insulin with absolutely no instruction on how to administer it besides take novolog with meals and levemir at bedtime. I understand that I need to work on regular meal times but that is not always possible. My prescription says to take WITH meals but now I read where some take it before meals. When I was in the hospital I got it at various times depending on when the nurse got to me. Does it make a difference when I take the fast acting insulin? I take the Levemir at the same time every night. Should I set times throughout the day to take the Novolog or should I take it with a meal or before a meal? Any input is greatly appreciated. Oh, as for why I was taken off the met and on the insulin, I have no idea. I don't mind though as my readings are much lower with the insulin.
