Dear sir

You need to tell us what medications you are currently taking , what are the dosage if insulin that you are taking and what are your sugar values. You also need to tell us about your hba1c level which tells me the average control of sugar over 3 months. You must check your following sugar values

Fasting before breakfast , 2 hr post lunch , before dinner and bedtime. Nowadays a lot if insulin dose adjustments are done online and we can help by using healthcaremagic for this purpose.

You can upload your reports , medication information and sugar values and we will help you with the dose adjustment.

Hope this helps
