where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I am 16 years old going on 17. I don't know what to do. I'm always tired and I never stay in range. Any advice?

Always consult your doctor for instructions. You can get very tired from ups & downs. Don't let the stress of diabetes get to you, but do call your doctor -that's what they're there for.

I'm going to suggest hormones are playing a part here. See your Dr, they may need to adjust your levels

Take more insulin. If your never in range I'm never in range an I've discovered the more often I take insulin the better my numbers are. Even if I'm not eating.

Adjust your carb ratio if it's always after meal times that you go high...if it's corrections then change your correction factor. As for the tiredness could be low b12 or low iron!

Is your insulin dose right? Talk to your dr - sounds like dose not right, too many carbs, or not injecting every time you eat which would explain highs
