... humulin and metformin combined. This is new for me to take all 3. I was wondering if anybody out there is doing the same. I'm scared of taking too much insulin and metformin but my bs is running in the 150's 3 and 4 hours after a meal
Your doctor is doing the right thing. More than one sort of insulin can be used during (a short or rapid acting and a long acting). It just depends on your blood glucose readings before breakfast and post meal times.
Metoformin is a FDA pregnancy category B. It is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby, so that can be used as well.
The aim of treating diabetes during pregnancy is to keep you blood sugars relatively constant with small peaks, otherwise it may be harmful to the baby.
