Here is my dinner. A piece of steak and some corn on the cob, no butter or margarine. Total: 25 grams of carbohydrate, 29 grams of fat (3/4 of my fat allowance for the day).
My blood sugar was 286 when I tested it before dinner. It should have been between 80 and 120. Here is how I calculate how much insulin to take: 1 units per 15 grams of carbohydrate from dinner, plus 1 unit for each 50 points above 120. Total insulin: 5 units. I inject myself ONE MORE TIME.
