Endo Says "No" to Extra Insulin/Novolog for Over-correcting

I checked with my Endo as to how much Novolog I should take if during a BG low, I over-correct. They were adamant that I not use any Novolog between meals, even if I spike following a BG low, and correcting that low.

They told me all I should do is hydrate my body by drinking a glass of water every 30 minutes, check my numbers, and cease hydrating once the spike subsides.

Sounds strange, but, I'll try it if there's a next time!.

Anyone else told to do this drinking water thing?

Shalom,

Pastor Paul

So far, the water has not been needed. I am using glucose tablets to treat any immediate signs of a low. So far, the tablets allow me to take a smaller, controlled amount of carbs/sugar to counter the low, and it keeps me from going way high.

Thanks for the concern. Both of you!
