I Am Having Problems Regulating My Blood Sugars During The Day. But When I Wake Up I Have Low Blood Sugars. ( I Do Not Have An Appetite)

My sugar is 28 in the morning at 8 am and a 10.8 in the late afternoon. 6 pm.

I am on Novilin ,2x a day.
Can you tell me what to help in getting my sugars under control.

I learned that in Canada that "between 6 and 8 I feel great". Close enough though.

That sounds like she is Canadian. Our levels are different types than American. Ours should be below 7 unless you are a senior than anything below 10 is excellent.

I also take my glucose level before my meals and adjust my insulin to my glucose levels. This allows me to keep my glucose level to an average of 4 to 6 Canadian measurements 4.0 mmol/L 72 mg/dl to 6.0 mmol/L 106 mg/dl http://www.joslin.org/info/conversion_table_for... .
