Getting off insulin - Posted by abbyozzi
Hi, I have always taken metformin 850mg bid and 10mg glipizide-er bid also. My morning sugars were 259. My doctor put me on nph 3 months ago, 12 units bid. My sugars were great with the afternoon test being a little low. My recent visit (two weeks ago) he said that I should decrease my insulin and I should be able to go off of it. I stopped the insulin 5 days ago and my sugars are great.Why is that? I really haven't changed my diet and I am unable to exercise do to other health issues.
