My fasting blood glucose today is 3.7!! But I am not having hypoglycemia symptoms. Should I inject insulin now? I am going to have my breakfast

Do you just inject a set number of units each meal?

Yes. Each meal I will eat about 30-60g carbohydrates and I will inject 4 units of insulin

ahh. You should talk about carb counting and having your insulin based on what you eat. for the last few years I inject 1 unit per 15g of carbs so if I eat 15g (like a few biscuits) I only inject 1 unit. if I have 60, I would inject 4 etc. it will give you a lot of freedom with what you eat

so now I have to test how much I need for 15g carbohydrates?

Probably best if you talk with a Diabetes educator but to me if you have 60g carbs with 4 units, you would be around 1 unit per exchange
