Take the insulin or not?

Posts: 0
My doctor just started me on Levemir insulin.  My instructions were to start with 10 units at bedtime and to increase it two units each evening if my fasting blood sugar in the morning was more than 100.  I have been taking the insulin for six days, injected 18 units last evening and this morning my fasting blood sugar was 86.

My question is this:  do I stop the insulin tonight and monitor the fasting blood sugar levels for the next several days and then take the insulin as I need it and, if so, do I start back up at 10 units or do I start with the 18 units?

Any suggestions are welcome, I called the doctor's office and there is just voice mail - no referral number to talk to a live person.
