So, your blood glucose levels are running higher than usual and you’re not sure why.
You’ve counted your carbohydrates and taken the correct amount of insulin. Still high. You have corrected with extra boluses of insulin using a ratio that has worked in the past. Still high. You’re not otherwise unwell. Frustrated because you have considered every possible cause and the answer still isn’t clear?
Over the years I have seen many patients with this problem and I have come to realise it is often the result of incorrect insulin storage. Get a new batch of insulin from the chemist and quickly the glucose levels fall back into range.
