You Get The Beer, And I'll Get The Lantus

You Get The Beer, And I'll Get The Lantus

The other day, Steph and I were divvying up the shopping that we had to do. I was running low on Lantus, and our refrigerator was also running low on beer, so it was pretty obvious that someone had to get the refills. She also suggested that she would pick up some takeout pizza for supper. And I went to the pharmacy and picked up the insulin. The concept of beer, pizza, and insulin all being part of a tight-control diabetes program might strike some people as unreasonable. But let me assure you that it can work. My tight-control program consists of Novolog given immediately after most meals plus Lantus as basal insulin. Since starting this program a bit over a year ago, I’ve averaged 110 mg/dl on my blood glucose levels, and had normal A1cs, most recently 5.9 You might ask: do I have any restrictions on what I eat? Yup, but they have nothing to do with diabetes. If I eat too much, I’ll gain weight, and like most other people, I have no need to gain any more weight. How can such a program work? 1) Zillions of blood glucose measurements. For example, I always check my BG before driving. To be sure, once in a while, I’ll do only two BGs a day, but if things are exceptional, I have no hesitation to check 6-10 times in a day. 2) Figuring out how much insulin is needed for my routine foods. For me,** 1** slice of pizza takes 4 units of Novolog; 1 bottle of beer is 3 units; 1 English muffin with peanut butter is 3 units. 3) Counting carbs and taking the Novolog after eating. I simply add up the number of units of insulin I’ll need as I go, from salad (no insulin coverage needed) to main course to dessert. Then I pop the total number of units right then and there, using an insulin pen. 4) Injecting through clothing. I discussed this a while back at my other blog, in an Continue reading >>

Anyone Take Novolog After Meal?

Anyone Take Novolog After Meal?

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. Does anyone take their Novolog bolus after they eat? depending on what my blood sugar is I might wait until after my meal . But foro the most part I take it right before i eat . My daughter doing this since last 2 days after lunch and on 1st day her ppbs was 122,next day it was 160. My daughter doing this since last 2 days after lunch and on 1st day her ppbs was 122,next day it was 160. Why did she start doing this? I was wondering because when I take my Novolog before my meal my sugars are always low after the meal (one to two hours). I think it's reacting too quickly. Oradev, given relatively normal carbs in the meal, this suggests to me you are taking too much, not that it's too fast. I used to be on Novolog. I also had gastroparesis, which made my digestion go very slow. I always had to wait until after I ate to take Novolog, or I would go low as I was finishing my meal. If I ate Pizza or anything with fat or lots of cheese in it, I had to eat, wait 30 minutes, then bolus. Lots of meat will take longer to digest also. Not sure if your high fiber would affect the situation, but others might know. Coz of exams going on and timings are such that she hardly finishes her study,get on dining table for meal and then go to school after taking shot,this is temporary but I dont see any major change in her ppbs if she takes shot b4 or after meal. Problem is with our diet,we are 100% veggie and most of our foods are with carbs,can't help,no she has no issue of going low after or before meal in any case. I was wondering because when I take my Novolog before my meal my sugars are always low after the m Continue reading >>

Thu, 11/18/2010 - 15:27 -- Richard Morris See also Kinetics vs. Dynamics , Humalog & Heat and Users' Reports Like Regular, Humalog and Novolog are used to cover meals and snacks. Most meals raise the blood sugar for only 2 to 3 hours afterwards. Once injected, Regular insulin takes 30 minutes to begin working, peaks between 2 and 4 hours and hangs on for 6 to 8 hours, long after the meal stopped raising the blood sugar. Humalog and Novolog, on the other hand, begin working in about 10 minutes, peaks at one to one and a half hours and are gone in about three and a half to four hours. Many people who've tried these faster insulins report that their control is improved and that they feel better. The great advantage of fast insulins are that they match the "action time" for most meals. You can take them as you begin eating, rather than the 30 to 45 minutes prior to eating required of Regular. No longer do you need to accurately anticipate when you (or your young child with diabetes) will begin eating. In addition, Humalog and Novolog leave your body faster so you don't have residual insulin causing low blood sugars in the late afternoon or, even worse, in the middle of the night. For most meals, fast insulins will be lowering the blood sugar at the same time the food is raising it. The rise in the blood sugar seen in the couple of hours after eating is much lower, especially with Novolog, and by the end of three hours the blood sugar is often back to its starting point. With Humalog or Novolog, you're better equipped to prevent spiking blood sugar between meals, while avoiding the lows that result from the combined buildup of Regular and long-acting insulins. The new Lantus insulin is an excellent choice when using these fast insulins to cover meals. The clearly defined ac Continue reading >>

Asknadia: Accidentally Injected 50 Units Of Novolog Insulin Instead Of Lantus

Asknadia: Accidentally Injected 50 Units Of Novolog Insulin Instead Of Lantus

Dear Nadia: I was going to watch a little TV before going to sleep I was wanting to wait up on my husband to get home from work. I grabbed my Lantus and took it in to the bedroom so I wouldn’t forget to take it before falling asleep. After getting all comfy in bed I thought I should just go ahead and take my Lantus. I take 50 units of Lantus at bed time and 8 units of Novalog with meals. My Blood sugar before going to bed was 136 so I get my Lantus pen dial up 50 units and inject it…… as soon as I withdrew the pin I knew something was wrong, I had just opened that Lantus pin the night before there shouldn’t be much used out of it but the pen was almost all empty. OMG what have I done? That’s my Novalog pen I told myself. I had just injected myself with 50 units of fast acting insulin. I’ve never did anything like that before I was freaking out. I knew this wasn’t good I knew I had to do something and do it quick. I ran to the computer and typed in “I took to much Novalog what do I do?” The first thing I read was call 911. I called my husband he didn’t answer I sent a text ” I need to get to the ER NOW” . I started getting dressed. While I was dressing my husband called I told him what had happened and to hurry I needed him to take me to the ER. I knew I needed to eat or drink something with a lot of sugar. I am a low carb eater and sugar wasn’t something I kept in the house and just then I remember seeing a can of real Coke in the refrigerator that my husband must had bought. I ran in and grabbed it popped it open and starting drinking. My husband arrived home a few minutes later we went to the ER where I spent the next 6 hours getting my finger stuck every 15-30 minutes and drinking sugary drinks and eating chocolate trying to keep my sugar fr Continue reading >>
