In order to get there I had to increase my Levemir from 40 units per day to 46 units per day over a 4 day period. I was worried about going low overnight with the increase but that did not happen. I have had a fear of going low overnight because you hear real horror stories about that. I am starting to get over that though. We shall see.
Perhaps as my journey continues I will start to be a little more aggressive with my basal insulin like I am with my bolus insulin. Situations like this just go to show that you have to always be watching for patterns to keep under control. Soon I may have to lower the Levemir down again but perhaps not if I start getting levels around 6 (108) in the mornings. Any lower than that and I don't think I would be comfortable.
What do you aim for as a level in the morning? Is it consistent and are you comfortable with it?
