Re: [IPk] protein and fat, Sashas late bg increase



Hi Abigail


My husband had suggested increasing the insulatard but I am a bit reluctant,
but may try this but only increase by half a unit (have several pens that
delivers = units) and see what happens.  At the moment we give extra
Actrapid and then have to set the alarm clock to test again later.  I
suppose I could try and get the Dr of D nurse to give me some Humalog or
Novorapid to try to correct night time highs this would at least mean her bg
returning to normal levels more quickly and not be wondering how long the
effect of the extra Actrapid is  going to last.
