Insulin and medication / Re: Victoza and insultard
« Last post by pms543 on Today at 07:39:46 AM »
With the victoza i was told that 0.6 is a lower dose for getting used to it and 1.2 is the normal dose. I take 1.2. I wouldnt think it was the victoza that caused bg to rise
so not sure Lucy, have always been on 0.6 this past year or more.,

Got up too early today and decided to monitor bg a lot closer, bg was 8.6@ 4.50am, an hour later & one cup of tea ( no sugar ) 9.3
Before brekky 7.00am - 9.7, bfast was a poached egg and half an avocado with a dash of paprika + cup of perculated coffee and dash of fresh cream 25 mins later 10.3

What the heck? and this i9s before any medications...

If this continues I need to ring DSN - am just venting here...I know you listen, thanks

Thanks all :)


Patti - they do know that though, at least if they've read my notes! But she still should have asked. Frankly I am more than a bit ticked that she immediately started talking about my chol results while I got the distinct impression that she would have skipped right over my TSH result (which was 10!) had I not asked her about it! I am sick to death of being treated for diseases I am only at risk for while completely ignoring diseases I actually have been shown to have!  :banghead: 


Anyway if the breakdown wasn't also bad I wouldn't be very concerned, but it is, so I am. Really hoping that cutting the carbs will do the trick. Although I wonder if even 100g per day is still too much to make any real difference? Plus after a month I'm starting to get some carb creep, got to get back on top of things again.


Grammabear - I take my Levemir twice a day. Currently my doses are equal but sometimes the nighttime one is less than the daytime one or vice versa. Trouble is right now I can't pin my insulin needs down at all! I basal tested during the day for a dose of 16u and got perfect, steady-on results. Two days later was having hypos all afternoon with no bolus on board, so could only be the Levemir! Dropped the dose to 15u, worked great for a day or two, then stubborn intractable low teens for a week. Finally decided I had to cave and increase the dose again (was a bit hesitant to do it after so many hypos), had to go up to 17u before I saw any difference. Then all good for a day or so, then another two days of constant hypos! So back down to 16u. Then days of highs again. So back up to 17u and now even that seems to not be enough because none of my corrections are taking hold like they should. ARGH!


Honestly for a few days I wondered if my meter wasn't losing the plot. Then I wondered if my insulin had gone off - or maybe my injection sites? Now I think the only thing losing it around here is me!  :o


I really need to crank out my thesis here in the next 4-6 weeks, sooner if possible. And there's the move to organize. But once we get settled in over there, fingers crossed I'll have at least a couple of weeks with nothing pressing to do! In the meantime I'm not lacking for fun, positive things - I have a great group of friends I've been spending as much time with as I can - I'm just lacking for time in the day!

You have been much missed Alan.  I was aware of the reason for your absence, but can't believe they have taken so long!

In case anyone noticed my absence I have been awaiting connection to the NBN (fast internet) for a month. I am now told I may be online Friday or Monday - but I was also told that last week. Sending this via tethering to my smartphone but I can't do that often as it gets expensive.

See you next week, hopefully.
