I finally got down to 5 units a day on friday and continued at 5 through the weekend. I decided to remove my pump on my next day off which is tuesday. My glucose numbers have been good.
On tuesday, I gave myself an injection of 4 units of Lantus, which is a long acting insulin. I kept my pump on for about 2 more hours to coincide to when the Lantus should kick in. It worked very well. My numbers were running a bit low, in the 70s, so I just ate more.
Everything was going well, so I even went golfing in the afternoon. I had not played all summer due to a frozen shoulder which was probably caused by my diabetes. But I noticed lately that it seemed better, so I thought I would give it a try. I had a good round and it felt great to be on the course again. My energy level is definitely increasing.
I worked on wednesday, and had the same problem with the lower glucose values. I had to eat 3 times before lunch. So on thursday, I tried 3 units and that seems to be going well too.
My most recent C-peptide value from Sept 2, was 1.75 fasting and 3.08 two hours after eating.
