I had my diabetic check up this week and my HbA1c has slightly come down to 7.1. I was expecting them to be less but this week my carb to insulin ratio seems to have changed. This change is due to the pregnancy, so I have increased my night time insulin to 20 instead of 18 and have been taking extra for meals. I am still working on what the ratio should be, but I am sure this will be the start of needing to increase my dose on a regular basis until the pregnancy is over.

 

I have been reading about islet cell transplant and a friend passed on this link http://diabetes.niddk.nih.gov/dm/pubs/pancreaticislet which I found very useful. I think its worth a reading.

 

Until next week x
