Hi everyone, I have been type 2 for 7 years and started insulin in January. I have tried several kinds of basal and increased my dosages until settling on the concentrated Toujeo 300 using 130 units at night and Novorapid 40 units per meal a couple months ago. I’m also on Jardiance and Ramipril for heart/kidneys. Still even with these doses my HBA1C was 81 at the end of May and I have put on 8kg this year with insulin so now BMI 29. I did my research on this forum and since end of June, I have been reducing my carbs and now try to aim for less than 20g carbs a day, basically from veg. As a result I kept Toujeo at 130 a night and have been reducing my Novorapid to average 5-8 units a meal. Even a no carb salad with protein or just eggs still required 5 units of insulin. I tracked on mySugr since June and my estimated HBA1C is now 37. However over the past few days I have added in intermittent fasting 16/8 and have been doing Gillian’s 30 day shred dvd and other resistance exercise and have not needed any insulin for meals at all (under 20g carbs a day) but my wake up fasting and between meals I’m dropping to 4.0 several times. I have had a jelly baby or gluco tab as recommended by diabetes nurse but really I don’t want to take this as it’s adding to my carb count. How much should I reduce my Toujeo basal by to reflect for intermittent fasting and exercise? I reduced to 125 last night and still woke up to a 4.0. How long does exercising reduce your blood sugars for? What HBA1C should I be aiming for with insulin? Should I go for normal levels or pre diabetic levels. I want to go low as possible but try to avoid hypos. What’s a good snack to have if I’m at 4.5 to avoid going lower but not too carby? Thanks in advance for any advice!
