    I'm sorry you're wife isn't feeling well. First off, just because she has started insulin, does not make her a type 1. She is still a type 2 that now requires insulin. The type 2 board is much more active and you will get more feedback there than here.

    How low does she go in the morning. It's not a good idea to over eat after a low as your blood sugar will spike and then you will feel unwell. There is an excellent book called Think Like a Pancreas that can help you a great deal in learning about proper diet and insulin dosing.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Thank you for that info. She let me know also about type 1 & type 2 diabetes. I also learned that she wasn't getting enough calories. Again thank you for the info.
