Question from Camilla, Georgia, USA:
I have several questions about my diabetes: I take a 24 hour insulin as well as oral medication, is that good or bad? At mid-morning, my sugar level drops. Why? What happens to the body if the level drops every day around the same time? Why is it necessary to feed (for a lack of a better word) the insulin? There are some mornings I don't want to eat, just juice, why? With such poor appetite, why am I still gaining weight?
I am at a loss at how to answer your questions. I think it would be helpful for you to take a class from your local diabetes education professionals. I believe some of your questions require basic instruction.
