Hyperglycemia...Hi, I am a recently diagnosed Type 1 diabetic (6 months) and I am experiencing a long, frustrating state of Hyperglycemia. For about a month now I can t get my numbers down. My honeymoon phase lasted about the first two months, then I had been on a regime of .10 of levemir am and again in pm which was working very well. If anything I had to be careful to not get hypoglycemic if I was late eating. Under this previous dosage, I ate 3 carbs per meal usually and would have 1/2 - 1 carb in snacks. Now I am eating about 3-4 carbs per day and taking .17 of Levemir in the AM and again in the PM. I have taken doses of the novalog to try to get under 300 a few times..with the lowest I have been all month was 196. My AM fasting readings are about 220 on avg, my 30 day BG avg is 276. The Metphormin doesn t help much either. I have checked my keytones, they are slightly elevated on and off. Not sure what else to try...I don t understand why, between reduced carbs and almost double the insulin, my numbers won t come down. (same reading on 3 different meters and have made sure clean test site)...loosing weight again, serious thirst and constant headache, plus fatigue) - any suggestions? (by the way..37 yr old female)
