where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I'm pretty sure my Bloodsugar levels are whack. I think my insulin consumption has changed. Any suggestions on testing how much I need?

Are you on a pump, or injections? I have 2 diabetic kids who are on pumps. We change there insulin rates based on blood sugars particular times: upon waking (fasting blood sugar), two hours after breakfast before lunch two hours after lunch, and at bedtime. if I am worried about overnight blood sugar levels, I will test three times through the night. Both my girls are on continuous glucose monitors which makes spotting trends a lot easier.

Have you read John Walsh's "Using Insulin" or Gary Scheiner's "Think Like a Pancreas" ... those are tell excellent books, though there are many others, that can help you figure things out.
