Insulin resistant: If you are taking insulin and your blood sugar is high, you are not insulin resistant but you are not taking enough insulin.
There are two ways around this:
1: Increase your insulin bit by bit for a while.
2: Make changes to your diet. See "Nuval" on line.
3: Exercise as regularly as you can.
4: Work your way to needing less insulin.
