Diagnosed in hospital two days ago and now free to roam. (TYPE 1) I was taken into hospital on Thursday night with blood glucose readings in the 30+ range and Ketones of 4.1 After a crash course in testing and injections I am now at home and feeling slightly overwhelmed. I still have high blood glucose levels. I have been told to stick with 18 units of Lantus at night and use 12 units of Novorapid at meals. Think that this dosage is too low as blood glucose is double figures in the morning and climbing to high 20s at night. Want to try carb counting, but will not have an appointment with nurse till mid week at earliest! Just seems to me that I am still at levels that are too high.
