Good morning!

I'm new here and just have a quick question.

I was diagnosed T2 in 2011 and was briefly able to keep everything under control with metformin and diet. Until life went to hell in a handbasket and I lost control.

Now I'm trying to get things back in line but am having difficulty. My doctor put me on basal insulin last month and I've steadily increased my dosage as required by my doc.

Last night I missed my dose and noticed that there really wasn't much difference in my bg this morning.

Does it make sense that I'm taking 28 units of basal insulin and not seeing any lowering of bg?

I think you can treat yourself with a new molecular therapy that uses targeted peptides and proteins to restore cellular function. You should search Google using keywords "Peptide treatment" or "Regenerative Cellular Therapy".

Dear merrylocks,

Basal insulin ... unless you use an insulin pump ... is long-acting insulin that's designed to keep your blood sugar (glucose) levels on an 'even keel'. i.e. to try and stop blood sugar levels from fluctuating too much. Most of the long-acting (basal) insulins don't cause too much of a fluctuation in blood sugar levels, so you MAY not notice much of a drop.

The thing with basal (long-acting) insulins is that they will last in your system for anywhere between 18 and 26 hours, dependent on which specific basal insulin it is that you're using.

If you happened to miss tonight's injection too you're more likely to notice a bigger rise in your blood sugar levels tomorrow.
