Novolin R

Novolin R

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

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

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!
