I tend to find my BG rises in the cold because I'm eating stew and pie and mash and casseroles and hotpots whereas in summer I eat not a rabbit but like a rabbit.................
Well that was unexpected, proper hypo at lunch in fact that bad my boss asked if I was OK.
All OK now guess I will stick the alarms back on of well never mind.
Making! Not for me for family.
Evening teabags, currently waiting for a 3.7 to come up, had a hectic day with my first responder training so not been around. Woke up on a reported 5.5, but did a blood to find it was 8.5... sensor in its last few days, and I’m not sure I can rely on it. Recalibrated to the blood reading, and have spent the day trying to get back into range, but it’s the start of resistance week, isn’t it. Switched my basal program to cover that, just got in into the high sixes, did bloods to check and that has me at 3.7 So I really don’t know I I’ve been high all day or not! Libre scanner puts me as being in range all day so am a bit baffled. Everything says I’m in the threes now though, sometimes I really hate T1... still got 0.3u IOB, from all the corrections today.
Hi @Mel dCP hope your training went well today. How long does it last for?
As for your BG figures OMG, I dream about having BG like you have, but I do know you put in a tremendous effort to achieve these, dont beat yourself up.
The Libre is a great tool but as we are finding out it can at times be a bit inaccurate. Hopefully in the years and months to come Abbot will manage to improve the accuracy
Ha ha fellow teabags @Mel dCP !!
A day of ups and downs, averted 2 hypos with the G6 but as a consequence with running around I did overkill with the carbs so bouncy ball day..
bouncy balls days are my norn at work, I am now using a Libre + miao miao + xDrip+ via my phone and to my smart watch, an avaerage working days mileage is 9.2 miles while a busy working day can be over 12 mile . But sugars are mostly in range with alot of temp basal rates and micro boluses, saw my DSN today and it looks like my next pump will be a 670G with an enlite sensor
Defo, the cold weather used to make mine rise.
But like you- the last 2-3 days I have had lots of lows.
@Mel dCP- ditch the sensor? Abbot should be able to replace that?
Sending hugs mel
Must be the day for hypos knikki had a few myself today lowest being 2.6
Got another two weeks to go, it’s really intense and full on. I absolutely LOVE IT We did defibrillators today, plus normal CPR. And ran through scenarios starting from arriving on scene to the inevitable conclusion, I don’t normally like role play, but this was surprisingly ok. Highlighted how much I need to work on my upper body strength! But my slightly dodgy shoulders didn’t give way, so I’m happy with that.
And thank you, yeah, I do fixate a little on my cats-ups, I’m at 5.8 now, and quite content.
I’m reluctant to bin this one, there’s a massive bruise under it which I’m not sure I want to see the light of day
Talking of bruises, I got around to removing the nail varnish on my toes last night. I noticed that my right big toenail is purple underneath the polish - it doesn’t hurt (I do have feeling in that toe), there’s no spread of the bruise onto the toe itself, it’s literally just under the nail. Anyone come across this before? I never have. I’ve not kicked anything or dropped anything on it, it’s really odd. I’d never have noticed had I left the polish on and not fancied a change. Not sure whether to ring the DN tomorrow for advice.
Goodnight sleep well everyone and lets hope we all wake up to fabulous numbers
I had my dinner and actually weighed it so know my dose was right. Just tested and meter says 12.9, so I check again and get a 9, hmmm I think and try again (all different, clean, fingers) and 7.1. So posting here before I try again, any bets on the final number or do I just take an average? Grrrr
Awwww, I would swear but I'd have to tell myself off, 16.2. Now looking for the spare meter.
Roll up roll up come and play BG bingo
Ok so now I have a 13 and an 8. Might have to make a Cupar, take a few deep breaths and then test until I get any value within 1 of each other before correcting. Or I could pick the 16, correct and see how bumpy the night gets.
The advice might be to stop using opaque nail varnish !! I wonder what happens to an insulin pump when some one wearing one is zapped with a defibrillator!! ?Fried pump on toast??
Higher BSLs on this side of the world.
Maybe the unruly weather is to blame. Strong northerly winds, horizontal rains, abnormally low temperatures for November in Adelaide. No easy way to walk far and watching past episodes of 'Spooks" does get the adrenaline flowing.
Ah well, I shall go back to hiding under the covers , reading books and cartoons!!
And just wondering if this is the home of an ancestor of one of Mel's cats.
I asked about that. Anything electrical on the chest gets ripped off. Pumps elsewhere aren’t an issue (probably) as the zap takes the shortest route between the two electrodes. But if you’re needing zapping, I imagine your insulin pump is the least of your worries.
