When I lost my insurance, I also switched to Novolin N and Novolin R that I can get cheaper at Walmart. Surprisingly, my blood sugars are easier to control on these than when I was taking Lantus and Novolog. I hope you figure out what is best for you too.
I did that one time, but it was 40 units of Novolin. I have fibromyalgia and get brain fog a lot, so I have to be extra careful. In my case, I realized what I had done, thank the good Lord, so I ate quite a bit and kept checking my blood sugar each hour for several hours to make sure I didn't go way low.
I'm glad you went to the ER and they corrected it. Glad you're ok!
Finally I find folks who are going through the feelings I have also, and it's refreshing. A lot of people judge us, and it's nice to know I'm not the only one struggling with coping with diabetes day after day after day... To the outsider looking in, it would be easy to say eat right, exercise, and avoid sugar, but as we all know, it is not that simple.
Hi, I'm new here, so this is my first post. I had a vitrectomy done in my right eye on Jan 22, and about 3 or 4 weeks later, the surgeon said I have swelling from leakage in my right eye. He didn't make a connection between the surgery (I also had cataract surgery on the same eye on Jan 7) and the swelling. But an article I read online said it often happens as a result of cataract surgery. All that being said, the steroid drops I've been on to treat it for the past week and a half don't appear to be working, because my vision in that eye is even more blurry now. My opthamologist said I can continue using the drops and just wait for my followup appt with him, but I'm starting to think I need to hurry up and have laser or something to fix this. I can't see how to drive because of this, and I don't want it to get any worse. Any thoughts, any of you have this problem? Thanks,
