Blood Sugar numbers all over the place

I think the dr decreased my insulin too fast. I am having highs again and no sense to the numbers I am getting.

I called again. They want me to stay on the current doses (I told them I did go back to my original fast-acting Novolog for meals) of Tresiba long-acting of 25 units for several more days and give it some time to settle down.

They are fine with my numbers being between 90 and 130, but I am not. 90 fine, but 100 and above not so fine. I was down to 80’s and 90’s except for the morning and evening lows for about a week. I think they decreased it too much.

After a few days I have to start increasing my long-acting Tresiba by 2’s every 4-5 days.

I hate this. The research is out there that low carb and lower numbers in the normal ranges are the way to go, but the drs stand by the American Diabetes Association and their high carb, high numbers way of life. The ADA  has not changed this in the 20 years I have been diagnosed. They are keeping peoples numbers high and the damage is fatal eventually. I don’t want to die because they are not with the times or suffer other damage.

The decrease in sugar has helped my pain, my bipolar and my diabetes. Sugar is my enemy and so are high blood sugar readings. If I have to humor my dr and do it the more healthful way I will.

90 – 130 is not acceptable. I will finagle my insulin myself if I have to.

      What really gets me is the specialists are still spouting the American Diabetes Association misinformation. They haven’t changed their tune in over 20 years and with all the new info that is out there that is really bad. They are helping big pharma, not the patients. Diabetics could live much longer, healthier lives if they didn’t list to the ADA.
