  • Blood Sugar

    Can somebody help me? I was told to take 24 units of insulin a day. When I was in the hospital, my blood sugar was in the 400's & now that I'm home my sugar is sometimes low, 49, 64, 55, I don't know what to do. Should I take my insulin shots when I'm that low? Somebody please reply.
