So, today has been quite an uneventful day, thank you Dia-BULLY. But, my BGL’s have been high all day. Higher than where I would like them to be. What gives Dia-BULLY??
My bedtime BGL’s last night were sitting at 11.8mmol/L. Did a correction of 1.7u as well as set up a temp basal for 6 hours of 125%, blood ketones were sitting at 4.5mmol/L.
My FBG this morning was a shocking 10.2mmol/L, even after that correction and temp basal increase! Ugh! :***:C’mon Dia-BULLY, what you doin’ to me?! I thought we had some kind of understanding!? I did my morning finger prick, calibrated my pump, 1.775u correction needed. I bolused for my morning coffees…the usual morning routine… 0.4u.
Today was weigh-in day too. I lost another 1.5lbs this week. That’s 7.5lbs in the last 3 weeks. Woohoo! I’m more than happy with that. Hopefully, I’ll keep the LCHF up and my weight and BGL’s down!! I did my household chores this morning, had someone viewing my property and took my DD to her golfing lesson. Quite a busy morning, but still my BGL’s remain constantly high! Ugh!
No lunch again today (not hungry). I did a finger prick @ 1.15pm and calibrated my pump...9.0mmol/L. Did another correction of 1u and bolused for my 2x afternoon coffees and 2 squares of Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate. I ate my chocolate at 4.30pm (so, that’s a FAT FAST of 22.5 hours again). Loving this IF!
My BGL’s have been high all day today…Meh! Just don’t understand what is going on. They are currently …10.2mmol/L (8.45pm). I feel another correction coming soon.
My dinner was 100g roasted chicken drumsticks, which I ate at 6.45pm. Followed by a cream cheese mousse! Excessively full now! No more food until after 1pm tomorrow.
My macronutrients have been good today. I’ve had 8g net carbs again.
So Dia-BULLY, I’m at a loss as to why you are causing my BGL’s to stay in the high range. Tomorrow has got to be a better day??!!
I think Dia-BULLY that we have a better understanding of one another. We both know how we can be with one another and I know that we can continue out diabetes journey amicably together. I won't be journalling our progress after today, but let's continue our journey together...being kind to each other and supporting one another...
