B12 seems to have done the trick. We were doing 1 pill a day and now half pill.

Re: New member Snowball

Re: New member Snowball

No it's basically like the insulin isn't lasting quite long enough. At least during the day. I have two bottles and both are the same. Levels seem fine as well although they creep higher than I'd...
