i am 18 years old i take 3 shots a day my meter has alot of highs and no good readings its been in the 400s 300s 200s i see my pediatric endocronologist next month what is she going to do is she going to put me in the hospital?
What sort of regime are you on and what type of insulins that you only take 3 shots per day? I think that whatever you are doing needs adjusting if your sugars are running that high. You are going to feel a lot better when they come down (although that may take some getting used to). Are you on a regular basal/bolus regime with lantus or levemir and some sort of very fast acting? That normally requires 4 to 5 shots per day and that may be what your doc suggests. Since you are already taking 3, one or 2 more won't be that bad.
Novolin is a brand name and if it is cloudy, it sounds like nph. This is a very old fashioned insulin. If you want better control you should switch to a basal/bolus regime. This means taking a long acting (without peak like the nph) insulin that will cover your basal requirements. This is the insulin that is needed for your body to function. You will then count the carbs in the foods you eat and take the humalog based on what you are eating, every time you eat. You will also have to work out an ISF (insulin sensitivity factor). This is figuring out how many points one unit of the humalog will bring you down. So then you will know how much to take. It's a lot of work, but you can get excellent control doing this. It is the modern way although a fair number of docs still do what you are doing.
If you want to learn about this I would invest in getting the books "Think like a pancreas" and "Using Insulin". They will help you a lot get good control.
I don't think going to the hospital is necessary. You could probably do with a diabetes education class or see a CDE or nurse practitioner in the docs office. You also might be able to get these books at the library or used from an online retailer.
Carb counting is very important if you switch to basal/bolus. There are online counters too that you can look up that will help you know what you are eating.
Don't worry, you will be able to get good control. I'm sure of it. It's not rocket science, but it does take some work.
