Then that makes sense. If you have just started the Humulin it may take a bit of tweaking to finalize how many units you will need.

Testing Supplies
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’m wondering what type of testing supplies y’all are using. I’ve used all kinds, but after 6 years of working at my local Walmart pharmacy (I’m not working right now, but was working for Ruger, the gun manufacturer, before the cancer), I learned about Relion brand supplies.

Can Anyone Assist Me With An Issue I Have On My Accu-Chek Meter?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I keep getting an E-3 error. Initially I thought it was the batteries. Changed the batteries but the issue persisted. I eventually got a new unit but I am still getting these errors. My random glucose is normal as I recently had an HBa1C test. Am I doing something wrong?

A DiabetesTeam Member

Can also be due to faulty test strip.Do a repeat,as you say, with bigger blood drop.If problem persists report it to people supplying your strips- often issue replacements so you don't lose out

Can You Skip A Few Days Of Metformin If You Are Experiencing Nausea And Vomiting
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am having an issue due to Ozempic causing severe nausea and vomiting to the point that I became severely dehydrated. I won't be taking any more Ozempic but until it's all out of my system, I am still very nauseous. Is it okay to skip my metformin dose until I feel better?

A DiabetesTeam Member

If your pills are 500 mg each, then yes some diabetics do take up to 2000 mg per day.

I believe it is the maximum dose (although some doctors may prescribe up to 2500 mg I believe)
