    Hi Emlou - i can't see your profile from my phone but are you T1 or T2?

    Have you tried reducing your carb intake to see if that helps your insulin resistance?

    High levels are exhausting - i really feel for you!

    Do you carb count and adjust your novo rapid accordingly? Have you done a basal test? What does your diet look like?
