off 24 hr insulin and januvia

I have been off my meds for 4 days and not by choice. I am out and can't go to the Doctor until Fri. for new scripts. I also don't have insurance right now and can't get any.I have had diabetes for 12 years. I can't believe my counts are this good. 105 to 130. That is better than with meds.Of course I am eating very little but not starving and only the right foods. How long does a dose stay in you. I haven't had any Diabetic meds for 4 straight days.I also do plan on getting right back on them . I just expected them to skyrocket with no meds.

Re: off 24 hr insulin and januvia

Shelby1, what's the update here? did you get your meds? You must be a T1 if you're on 24 hour insulin. The insulin doesn't stay in your body. It's only in there for 24 hours and the fast acting is there for 3 hours. That's why you have to keep taking it when you eat. The only thing that could help keep your sugars down is exercising and not eating high carb foods.

You don't have to be a T1 to be on insulin. Many T2s are on it, especially the long acting. If Shelby is not also on mdi (numerous additional injections of rapid acting to compensate for carbs) then the poster is most likely a T2. Also, almost no T1s are put on Januvia.

Shelby, I hope your sugars continue to stay in range. It is possible that because you are eating well, you will continue to be ok, at least for the time being. I hope so.

Best of luck.
