At the moment, I’m not particularly happy. Last night my blood sugars were wacko, and today looks like it’s going to be a repeat of last night.
I ate dinner at eight o’clock. I was 60 mg/dL, so I didn’t bolus for my 40 carb meal. In hindsight, I should have bolused a little bit, but still, that shouldn’t have sent me above 250 mg/dL for the next three hours.
Yah, you got it. I alternated from being 280 mg/dL to 300 mg/dL. Oh, and a quick side note: I can’t sleep when I’m high. So I was up until after midnight. Lovely.
I did a new sight change, and yet, two hours later, still above 250 mg/dL. And I’ve got graphs to prove it.
Finally, I got fed up with feeling bad and re-reading several different books (including Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Eldest), so I tested again, over-rode the suggestion of zero units of insulin, and gave myself two units. Then I conked out.
Woke up at the wonderfully pleasant number of 90 mg/dL, but apparently we can’t go with out a day of craziness. My CGM says I’m 207 and going up fast.
