    Hello welcome! Have you been taught how to carb count and adjust insulin for meals?

    @dagenham69 could you tell us a bit about yourself?
    Your profile says you have type 1 (and you have posted in the type 1 subforum) but it says you are treated with oral meds.

    How long have you had type 1 and how do you treat it?
    With that information, there are 100s of years of joint experience amongst the T1 crowd who can probably offer some suggestions.

    What is your hba1c at the moment? and how long have you been diagnosed type 1 and on insulin?

    Getting levels down is a marathon not a sprint and it's far healthier to get them down gradually as quickly can do more damage than good that I unfortunately went through myself

    Hello @dagenham69 , and welcome to the forum!
    It would be easier for us to give you some tips and tricks about managing your diabetes if you told us a bit more about how you're managing right now. For instance, do you choose your doses of novorapid yourself, depending on what you eat or are you on fixed doses for every meal? How long have you been diagnosed with T1?

    It would also help if you told us what questions you have at the moment, maybe we can answer them :)

    Good luck!
