    I am on insulin. However my blood sugar is still very high and keep rising even though I am taking my medication. What is wrong?

    Hello, I would suggest calling your doctor immediately to discuss the problem. I suggest that your medical professional observes your technique for injection as this may be a possible cause (if there is an error in technique). You also may want to bring a record of what you are eating to see about the carb to insulin amounts. Your doctor may also want to adjust your medication. Please let us know how you make out.
