From North Walsham, Norfolk, United Kingdom:

I have only known that I am a diabetic for just under a year now. I am currently taking 120 units of Mixtard 30 in the morning and again before dinner. Is this considered a lot? My GP seems to think so but he cannot get an answer from the Diabetic Clinic here.


You don't say how old or how heavy you are but the bottom line is simple -- If this dose gives you good control without excessive hypos and you are not rapidly gaining weight then it is the correct dose for you.
