Default Started my insuline yesterday/today

Re-post because I think I put it in the wrong place.

FINALLY saved up to go to endo today. A1c not so good at 8.9, but I knew this.

so...
Lantus 20 units before bed
Novolog
(0) before breakfast (I eat almost no carbs for breakfast)
(4) Before lunch
(3) before dinner.

hows this all sound?
she gave me a formula to adjust if needed but I am going back in 2 weeks.
(bg-100) / 60 1 unit. How does this all sound to my fellow BG brethren...

Now I was ok today... in fact got down to 185!!! Doesn't seam that good but when you have been above 240 for 5 weeks that makes me happy
I did actually self sabatoge, but it was more of a test then an actual sabatoge and ate chinese food for dinner and its back in the 280's.

She (my endo) told me I could "adjust" and if it was that high take 2 units to help bring it down, is that a good idea right now?

Also and most importantly. The Novolog has a twisty thing on the end to adjust the units. when I click it to inject, it seams to spin backwards down to 0. Is that what it is supposed to do?

Yes That is a good idea, whats a bad idea is eating food you KNOW will give you high BG

Also and most importantly. The Novolog has a twisty thing on the end to adjust the units. when I click it to inject, it seams to spin backwards down to 0. Is that what it is supposed to do?

Yes, as you inject the numbers go down to zero

Congrats on heading in the right direction. Two books you should read, "using insulin" and "Think like a pancreas"

And stop
sabatoge (doing a test).

thank you :-)

Starting today I am using a log to keep track of my food intake so that should help. My fasting BG was down to 211 this morning which is nearly 100 points less than it was before I started the insulin :-)
Today my goal is to get under 160 by my noon injection and stay under for good :-) then I think I'll be ok for a while. Before I took the insulin it didn't matter if I was good or bad (aside from REALLY bad like chocolate cake) it never went under 300 unless I drank and even then under 250 was hard. I really have to concentrate now on NOT freewheeling it.
