It would appear that you may need some adjustments in your insulin regime Your health care team can evaluate your blood sugars ad make adjustments accordingly. It sounds like you may not be getting enough coverage with medication/insulin at meal time. I am not sure what type of insulin you currently take, but with proper adjustments, you will start to see your numbers even out. Be sure to keep good blood sugar logs so that your health care team can evaluate them.
