Just wondering…is it common for adult-diagnosed insulin-dependent diabetics to take a while to get blood sugar under control, even when doing a good job counting carb choices and insulin units? Like, can one still expect something of a roller coaster the first week, which subsides with time? My wife’s blood sugar seems to swing wildly (like, from 70 at one point in the day to well over 200 after dinner), even though she has been very deliberate about matching her consumption of carbs with units of insulin in pre-meal injections and taking the right amount of slow acting insulin. Does the body take a little while to adjust physiologically in going from a chronic hyperglycemic state to the point where it gets into the right rhythm with diet and insulin injections. It’s been frustrating so far. She's been trying so hard to do everything right and yet she isn't being rewarded with blood sugar readings where they should be.
