Default numbers better?

well over the past few days ive been trying something new, havent run it by my doctor yet even though i know i should but the results have been better. i have started splitting my doses of novorapid to 25 premeal and 15 post about an hour later and my numbers have gone down drasticly, they are still a little high at times but not near what they were. i woke up this morning at 119, first time not high waking up in years. it was under 170 all day today. im going to keep this up all week and when i call the doc see what he thinks. but in the same thinking, i am still going to order my pump at the start of the month cause if my insulin goes up in the new year, my pump surely will too. i know this isnt news but i felt i needed to share, kinda vent. thanks all.

Unfortunately such is the way of life with diabetes. There are so many things going on under the hood, so to speak, that what works one week will not necessarily work the next, even day to day sometimes. Personally I need to adjust my insulin every couple days (which can sometimes be significant) because of work, I switch from nights to days on a weekly basis and it just wreaks havoc on my BG levels.

Not sure what you are eating or how high your bg are going. Perhaps you need more premeal, or you are injecting in a bad location (different locations = different absorption rates), injecting too much in a single administering (the more you inject at a single time, the greater the variation of how much actually makes it into the blood stream).

Also a culprit sometimes can be the basal insulin. I remember back when I was on levemir it was claimed to last 24 hours. I quickly discovered that wasn't even close, it was more closer to 12 hours for me and I ended up dividing it into two equal doses approximately 12 hours apart.
