Actully, I think my basel rates are correct. The problem doesn't
occur when NOT eating, in that case, the BG levels remain normal.
(I even fasted a whole day, during Yom Kippur two months ago)
I'm, however, 18 years old. So I guess hormons got to do with it; As
I understand, the IU/day I do is quite high (although not unnormal) -
about 1IU/kg. (which says around 70-80 IU/day).
Happy by default, Alon Levi.
