Just got results back from labs - a1c was 8. My doc increased my long acting insulin but has done nothing about my short acting insulin. I almost wonder if I should ask if short needs increased.

I would take a few days of your new dosage and see how that works and if you do adjust it do it slowly and only 1-2 units at a time :) hope this helps

What you want to avoid is spiking which your short acting will do where your long acting will bring down your levels but it will be smoother
