    Wow that is a lot... I only take 9 units in the morning and 15 on an evening... I have no insulin resistance though and am still producing some of my own insulin which is probably why my doses are quite low...

    Might be a late T1 or LADA. I am showing traces of ketones on ketostix. Whole thing is perplexing me. Going to have discussion with DSN.
