so i've had the dexcom on for almost a week ... and now i know how ridiculous my blood sugars are on a day to day basis. geez. it's almost embarrassing. but ya know, i have diabetes. it's not going to be perfect.
my blood sugars have been i guess okay during this week ... i'm noticing the reaction times based on certain things i eat and some other stuff i want to work on for myself (including getting my ass back on a regular workout schedule. sigh. i miss bootcamp.), i am trying to perfect my delivery time when i bolus for meals ... why is it so hard for me to perfect the combo ratio? what percentage now? what percentage over the next hour? should it be an hour? a half hour? more than an hour? i hate math.
i got excited yesterday because i thought i was doing something right ... my 12 hour graph looked like this!
i hadn't done anything out of the ordinary, had regular meals, regular boluses ... things were just working out in my favor i guess. and then i jinxed myself by saying it out loud.
this morning, i look like THIS.
now, my blood sugar checks this morning have been in the 220s and 230s but i mean, seriously? wtf? why? i didn't eat anything unusual, but apparently at night my body was like hey guess what THIS IS GONNA HAPPEN.
i'm really happy about it. which is probably also helping me come down at a nice rate ...
life with diabetes continues.
