Recently I was taken off my "cheap" insulin and put on some very high dollar medication. I was told this new insulin would work so much better! It hasn't. I was on two shots a day of 70/30 with 47 units at night and 50 during day. Now I am on 4 shots a day, one before each meal and one at night. It isn't bringing my blood sugars down and I am counting carbs. I am taking about the same amount of insulin as I was on the 70/30. I am now afraid to eat anything!
