Hi, I am crofssng over from Ostomies. I have a puzzling probem I don't seem to figure out.
I am a type II diabetic and have been for a long time, I also have a colostomy and a permanent Foley Catheter. I have had numerous bladder infections for nearly a year now. Usually e-coli but apparantly the strain is resistant to antibiotics. I also have severe obstructive lumg disease. My problem is that for the last week or so I have had quite high blood glucose readings in the morning (fasting). 290 + The readings get gradually better through the day until the before dinner readings are in a normal range. I take 40 units of Lantus at night, and count carbs for each meal. I take Novolog 5 units, per carb after each meal. I am nearly bedfast, because of my lung probles so the decrease cannot be ascribed to excercise. My question is how to control the high glucose reading in the morning. I understand that any change should be only on a doctor's recomendation, but I would really welcome any coments
When there are no more choices, tha decision is easy!
