Hello to all. My name is Rhonda, I live in Mt. Juliet, Tn and I was diagnosed with Type 2 in March 2009. My PCP started me on the "normal" protocol...Metformin then Metformin ER with Glipizide and Lantus...After a year of very high Blood Sugar, and me asking to be put on regular insulin, he finally sent me to an Endo. The Endo took me off the pills and now I do 4 insulin shots a day. Novolin 70/30 before breakfast, before dinner, and before bed. Novolin R before lunch. 50 units on all.
It's only been 10 days but my sugars have gone from the 300's or 200's down to 62 (the lowest). My body can't deal with this. I really don't think I an deal with this. I thought that I wanted to do insulin since the pills didn't work, but it's so overwhelming. My entire day revoloves around shots, testing, shots, testing....I need to get on a routine with all of this but I don't know how.
I feel so alone. I took my regular insulin shot a couple of hours ago, ate yogurt, and I'm getting the shakes....I know that my Blood sugar will be around 75 when I test in a few min.
Sorry, I bet you get tired of hearing the same thing over and over again.... but what should I do?
