Normal dose of insulin for Type 1 diabetic?
Just wondering what a “normal” dose of short-acting insulin would be per carbohydrate serving (+-15g)? I am currently injecting about 3 units Novorapid / carb (along with 30 units Lantus long acting Insulin in the morning) but am really struggling to control my sugars. I am trying not to increase my dose too much but my sugars bounce up and down all day and I’m really tired and irritable lately and have gone from a comfy 52kgs to 56kg’s!!!!
How can I adjust my dose without going too low / running high? Is there any merit in cutting out carbs completely for a while?
