I started taking insulin 2 days ago, Humulin N 8 units at bedtime (gestational diabetes). My glucose readings haven't been too bad (highest ever was 148 - most of the time they hover around 120) - they want me at under 120. My morning ketones were almost always present and morning fasting was a bit high (just under 100) - they want me between 60-90 for morning fasting. .
2 days on the insulin and 2 days NO keytones. Yeah!
As for my blood sugar, that hasn't changed. Just curious if it takes time for the body to adjust to the insulin. I'm very happy about
my ketone changes and hope it stays that way.
I've also added a 3:00 am blood check to be sure I wasn't bottoming out. It's been near 100 both days, so I don't think that will be a problem.
Does it take time for the body to adjust to insulin?
Thank you for your help.
I added a bit to your subject so we may get a quicker response. ~Jeannie
