Hey there,

I too have the a similar problem. Sometimes when I work out my sugars go up instead of down. Although this is not the case all of the time. I have been diabetic for ten years now and I would say I have pretty good contraol of it. I used to live in Toronto so I can't help you with a doctor in the B.C. area. But on your next visit to your endo ask about Lantus. It's a relatively new insulin in Canada, I think it got approved about 4 or 5 months ago. It's really good because it last for 24 hours so you'l save yourself some jabs. Also ask about Novorapid, this is a fast acting insulin that last for about
1 hour, it's used only for meals. I find that 1 unit of Novorapid covers about 15 grams of carbohydrate.

Good Luck
