Reducing Insulin TDD dosage

Posted Sep 07 2008 8:40pm

One of things I am working really hard on right now is reducing my TDD. It seems the more insulin you use, the more you end up needing. The result -- weight gain.

There are two things I do to reduce insulin dosage -- one is low carb it as much as possible. Friday, I stocked my refrigator with low carb snacks that I don't tend to binge on.

The second thing I do is exercise more, especially after meals. I try to walk after each meal, but haven't made it so far this weekend. However, I have been increasing my frequency and duration -- I'm up to 15 minutes at a time on the treadmill as of today, so that does end up being better.

As a result of working on that over the past two weeks, I've gotten my average TDD drown to 89 from 120 two weeks ago. I did tweak my bolus settings a bit today and I'll see how that goes next week at school. It's better to go a tad high right now, then end up going low. That does so ruin my day.
