Default Re: When should I increase his insulin?

They haven't made a test strip to tell us where the sugar came from . Wish they could so all we can do is speculate

As long as your testing blood sugar a little bump should be ok . What I look for is if the bump drives numbers higher but with any dose adjustment higher give it 5 to 7 days to settle
Jesse-26 lbs - 15.5 years old - 10 years diabetic - one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack - 3 shots of Novolin a day sometimes Novolog or r as a correction to higher sugar but that is rare. total insulin for a 24 hour period is between 8 and 10 units of NPH insulin depending on her fasting number
