Hi, Almost finished Dr Bernstein and have been trying his diet (most of the time) for past few weeks but still experiencing see saw BG readings, sometimes having eaten a very low carb meal ie salad with small amount of protein and a fairly substantial amount of insulin - so quite confused really ! However D r B talks about type one diabetics having 5 shots of insulin per day so I assume he means Levemir (long acting insulin) first thing, with fast acting insulin shots after every meal ie 3 and another long acting shot at bedtime ? Do any type 1's do this and if so how do they find their BG readings ? I currently take 3 shots of basal Novorapid per day to cover meals and 1 shot of levemir (long acting at bedtime so I am wondering about the possibility of a 5th shot to help with my BGs. Unfortunately my hospital doctor is not helpful at all. Also is Novorapid regarded as regular or fast acting insulin as Dr B talks about insulin prescribed in the US ? Any help or advice would be warmly received.
