no, shouldn't take more at this point.

you should continue to monitor your sugar and take your regular insulin dose

and show your doctor your insulin levels

if your levels continue to stay high, you will need higher regular doses of insulin.

your high levels could be due to what you are eating as well

if you are eating more during the holidays, this can drive up your levels as well.

let me know if you have questions.
