Dean, if you provide a bit more info, like what background insulin you're on and perhaps an extract from your blood- glucose diary showing the problems you're having, then you might get some more responses.

Breaking it down it could be:

1. Too much quick acting bolus insulin for your lunch and evening meals/evening snacks.
2. Too much long acting basal insulin.

A test of the basal would quickly rule that out.
