SO HOW MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF INSULIN IS THERE…MAYBE I'M ON THE WRONG TYPE?
THIS IS WHAT I ALREADY TAKE NOVALOG B4 MEALS 20-30 UNITS DEPENDING ON BS COUNT. LANTUS 50-75 UNITS AT BEDTIME ALSO DEPENDS ON BS COUNT. METFORMIN 500 MG ONCE DAILY BUT BUT I HAVE TO CUT THEM INTO FOURTHS AND TAKE THEM PERIODICALLY THROUGHOUT DAY AS IF I TAKE THE WHOLE TABLET ALL AT ONCE I LITERALLY WILL FOAM AT THE MOUTH UNCONTROLABLY. THERE WAS ANOTHER ONE THE DOCTORS WANTED ME TO TAKE AT NIGHT ALONG WITH THE LANTUS INJECTION IT STARTED WITH A "G" BUT I SWELL UP IN THE FACE TURN EXTREMELY RED ALL OVER MY BODY… WENT TO ER - THEY KEPT ME OVERNIGHT SAID I HAD A HIVE REACTION TO THE DRUG TO STOP TAKING IT, THE NEXT MORNING MY FACE WAS ALL BLACK AN BLUE STILL HAD RED WELTS FROM TAKING THAT MEDICATION I LOOKED AS IF IWAS BEATEN UP SEVERLY…THERE'S MORE THAT I WANT TO ASK BUT MY EYES TODAY ARE TEARING SO BADLY AND BURNING TIME 4 A COOL RAG PER DRS ORDERS…NO ON-LINETIME 2DAY AND NO CROCHETING EITHER…ITS OVERCAST HERE WAITING FOR THE BIG SNOWSTORM USUALLY MY EYES DON'T BOTHER ME ON DAYS LIKETHESE BUT WHEN ITS SUNNY CAN'T STAND TO BE OUT IN ALL THAT DAYLIGHT ITS LITERALLY BLINDING
