Hi, everyone. Diagnosed w Type 1 (age 54) at the hospital over holidays. High glucose (590s) and ketoacidosis. (A1c 13.3) I was prescribed Levemir and Novolog, but given inaccurate instructions from the hospital about how to use Novolog and sliding scale. My endocrinologist quit her practice - and, on my own, I was feeling pretty bad for weeks... rallying from 60s in the morning to 300's at bedtime. As I tried to figure out what I was doing wrong, I googled and came across this forum. It was here that I learned about needing a ratio, that I should be taking Novolog to cover each meal, and so much more. This great resource. Knowledgeable people here helped me know what to ask and how to make sure I was really communicating with a good endocrinologist. So a big thank you for the helpful insight. In a matter of days... using the medications correctly, my numbers are stabilizing... and I feel better.
