Hi, I take 22m 3x a day before meals and 20ml of protaphane before sleep. I do skip the insulin at lunchtimes. My diet is about 70% ok. I cut out potatoes and had limited low GI bread and my sugar in morning normally about 14. I am at a diabetic clinic. Any info to help me. Thanks

Hi its important to not skip your insulin dose completely. My doctor tells me to half the dose.
Otherwise your body may have higher sugars.
Best wishes!

is 14 your post prandial number or your fasting(waking) number, cause thats pretty high.
Diabetic clinics sometimes just don't get it.You need to eat as little amount of carbs as possible and your numbers will lower.Do you have a meter?Important to eat to your meter.Take a reading before you eat, another after an hour, to see how much a certain food has spiked you, and again at 2 hrs to see how close to your base reading you came down to
