I'm not really sure, but David or others that has more knowledge can help you. I don't take insulin I'm sorry I cannot help,I just don't have much knowledge about this.

Can you provide some information about your diet?

Are you eating the right amount of carbs?

Are you getting some daily exercise?

Are you overweight?

Have you discussed the "severe acidity" with your doctor?

What advice have you received from your doctor?
