Hey everyone. I hope y'all doing grand today! So..... A quick update first. Tomorrow it will be 3 weeks since I was diagnosed 3c. A lot has happened in that time. Lots of research, doctor and DSN appointments. I have an eye screening test and an appointment with the consultant surgeon, AKA 'the professor' (Pancreas & Benign HPB unit) at my local hospital next month. (If you have read my first post you will be aware of the problems I have had). So hopefully all will go well. (Please no more gall stones!!) My glucose levels are still high compared to a person who has good control of their diabetes. My last 7 day average has been 12.0. Considering my levels at various points recently after diagnosis were in excess of 40 I dont think I'm doing too bad. I have had one hypo so far and I counter attacked that perfectly with 6 Jelly Babies... yummy I then followed that with a sandwich and some NovaRapid. 2 hours later... 5.6, YES! My overall mood, stamina and motivation are greatly increased and I'd say pretty much back to normal. I have been learning carb counting too. Anyway.... I have another question for you all. I know that I should maybe know this already but I really haven't thought about it too much. Is there a general rule for glucose levels at bed time? For example... If your level is 5.3 when you go to bed, should you have a light snack/supper and match those carbs with novarapid or not eat anything? I dont think I'm getting my thoughts on to paper properly here. I'm not quite sure how to explain. Say if my level is 5.3 and I go to sleep, will my level continue to fall to the extent that I have a hypo during the night and therefore should set my alarm for a level check. Or will it not really fluctuate that much? If it will drop too low, then will eating a small snack without novarapid raise it enough to prevent it going too low before the morning, therefore taking away the need for a check during the night? . Basically, slightly putting your level up on purpose, taking into consideration/predicting the amount it will drop. I suppose its all going to depend on when you last had something to eat.... doesn't it? or does it? ARRRGHH! The reason I am asking this is not because I cant be bothered waking from my nice lovely sleep it's because one of my anti-depressant medications causes me to sleep extremely deeply for the majority of the night and I am concerned that my alarm will not wake me up. I'm sorry. I've probably confused you all as much as I have myself. Maybe you can understand. Depending on what sort of response I get I may have to delete this post Thanks for reading my random garble. Any input would be very welcome.
