Another thing, I ended up on a psychiatric ward due to depression & due to being diagnosed only a few months back, I was prescribed 12 units of novorapid per meal & 14 units of levemir on a night. The ward nurses wouldn't let me inject less than 12 units but my honeymoon phase had just started and I didn't need 12 units!! That was scary as hell because the food served didn't have enough carbs to require all that insulin. Despite protesting to the doctor, my choices were no insulin or hypo. They also forced me to inject 14 units of levemir on an evening so my sugars were plummeting all day anyway. Most terrifying week of my life.
