Stopping the Injections
Today I have stopped injecting insulin. I have been dropping two units a day, from a high of 26 units of a long acting insulin called Lantos, to six units yesterday. My blood sugar has been steadily dropping on my carnivore diet and I have been closely monitoring the change. I will continue to monitor it closely and see what happens. I am still on Janumet, a combination of Januvia and Metformin, 1,000 mg twice a day. If the blood sugars stay down, my next task will be weaning myself off of the Janumet. Which I have every reason to expect they will. Wow, will that save me a lot of money! It costs about $65 per month for the Janumet and about $75 per month for the Lantos. That much savings will easily pay for all the extra protein I am consuming.
