I take 80 units 3 X per day and still wake up with blood sugars above 220. It is so hard to find a doctor that actually treats you for your concern instead preach about losing weight when the medicine they prescribe causes you to gain the weight in the first place.

This has NOT worked for me but Doc keeps increasing dosage. I'm under a LOT of stress and think this is what is keeping me in this dilemna. She has me on 20 two times a day. I'm at 250 to 205 range.
