    No never take a correction dose when alcohol is involved. Too dangerous. Even with highs like that my HBA1C is 49 so not bad. My control in the main is bang on and I don’t worry about highs. You end up correcting, then eating, then correcting which is worse than just letting it come down naturally in my opinion.

    223 today 2 hours after bolussing 5 units for early dinner plus 1 correction unit. Yikes. These are the moments when I remember why I don't normally eat carbs. Goodbye - Italy hello keto!

    14.9 this morning, but my coffee from the local shop was much sweeter than usual so I think they gave me the wrong one.

    Hit 17 last night and I have no idea why.

    Yesterday bit of a nightmare 2.5hrs after eating 6.1 and stable this is normal for that meal so awesome, scanned around 3 hours after the meal and it was 10.1 so did a finger print and it was actually 10.3, anyway too 2u correction dose as it was about 11pm and that would sort it. Went to bed at 12am and it's 13.3 and sky rocketing up on the Libre, anyway because I've already taken the correction dose I prayed it would work. Did it NO it was 10.1 when I woke up. FFS!!!

    My highest I've seen till now was 18.1 first thing in the morning. I've had ever had anything like that ever before but in the last 6 months it's been getting worse even with diet n exercise plus no snacks or high carb meals
    Yesterday had a 7.7 and today it is 8.0 (all fasting readings)

    Rule of thumb is that more insulin only makes the problem of being insulin resistant worse.

    When you are insulin resistant what happens in your body is the fat cells have no more room to store any of the energy so the remaining energy is pushed into your blood stream raising blood sugars with no way to be stored.

    Ideally ways people reduce insulin needs is through nutrition, exercise and timing these two things correctly.

    I highly recommend looking up Dr. Ted Naimen and Dr Jason Fung.
