I am suffering from type 1 diabetes. My HbA1c is too high. I have been on Insulin for around seven years now, and I am trying to lower it. I have a few questions. I keep getting Insulin bumps and lumps every time I choose the abdomen for an injection site. How can I ensure adequate insulin absorption? Also, how can I reduce the pain produced around injection site? I get morning hypoglycemias very often despite how early my last shot the day before was or how elevated the glucose reading was before going to bed. It is often so extreme that I lose control of my awareness and overeat, causing an acute elevation in blood glucose. How can I control that fluctuation? How can I figure out the suitable Metformin (was prescribed to treat insulin resistance) as well as Insulin dosage for me? How do I identify the causes of my blood glucose elevation if I knew it was not food? I am planning to start going to the gym. How can I use that to my advantage and not the other way around?
