Hi all, I am just starting experiments with insulin. My first goal was to learn how much a minimum unit will affect me. I started with 1 unit in a Novolog Flexpen. Long story short, it seemed to do nothing. Second experiment I cut carbs from the same meal and got lower #'s but same pattern, as if the insulin did nothing. Consistant with what my pancreas alone would do. I might eventually like to use this to cover a very low-carb meal or a meal with mixed fast acting carbs and slow acting carbs. I am considering what my next experiment will be and would appreciate opinions. I could take the same meal and cut the carbs once more and/or inject with no meal to fully exhaust any opportunity to see if/what 1 unit will do. OR, I could just up the dose. If I up the dose should I just go to 2 units or 1 1/2. I guess what I'm asking is should I ask my doc to track down a Novolog Jr pen for me, that way I could up more slowly but also have more fine tuning ability from there? If I up the dose my plan is to use that same meal that I've been using with these experiments, the second, reduced carb version. 2 c. salad greens, canned tuna or chicken 22.5g PRO, mayo with 0 carbs per serving, 1/2 bagel 21g. CHO 2g sugar and 3 g PRO.
