    hi all
    I no it been some time from the last time I posted. I have not been having a good time. been to the hospital to day my bloods where at an all time high at 37.8 and that's after taking my morning insulin of 60 units and nothing to eat. so for the third time my insulin is to change from 2 injections a day to 4. they would have kept me in today if I'd let them. so back again on Thursday.
    will it ever settle ????????.

    Sorry to hear your having such a hard time.

    I thought injecting three times a day was bad enough! Can't imagine four times a day :shock:

    Hopefully they will find the right course of action for you soon.

    I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. my AC one blood level was rated at 11. my blood glucose level was averaging about 378. I'm on 1000 milligrams of metformin twice daily. my glucose level was an averaging approximately 150. I was going to have to take a second medication to help bring me down to the correct level, but I found something called Ocotea oil.the ocotea oil has helped to stabilize my blood glucose level at about 100. I highly recommend this for anyone having trouble maintaining the proper blood glucose level

    Hi Phil

    Just had my 3 month HbA1C result and it was 68 - so things are looking a heck of lot better.

    How are you doing now? Hope your bloods have improved.

    As long as they are coming down that is really good. At least the hospital are monitoring you closely and once you get the right dosage you will slowly start feeling better :)
