28 Units of Lantus in the morning
1:7 for Carbs
1:20 for Corrections
So, yeah, this ends up being enough insulin to kill a small horse but my blood tests are good enough to give me an A1C of 7.2 so congrats to me.
Here is the new plan:
20 Units of Lantus in the AM, 5 in the PM
1:10 for Carbs
1:50 for Corrections
Since this new regime I haven't had a reading under 180 and some as high as 350. I called Dr. Goland and she said it might take a day to start working and settle in, but I feel shitty. I respect her professional opinion but I think she's wrong on this one.
I am choosing to go against this advice and go with what works for me. I'm stubborn but adorable so it's all good.
The morale to this story is: you may be working with one of the brightest diabetes professionals in the country, but NO ONE is a better expert on you, than you. And with that and am going to lunch.
