Are you exercising, or sitting? I went to lunch with a friend last week
and kept bolusing (and sitting), but could not get it below the high
200's. I think it's because I had a fried chicken sandwich and fries.
After lunch I did a little shopping and dropped over 100 points in less
than an hour. I've noticed I'm much more sensitive to insulin if I'm
even a little active, as opposed to just sitting.
When I was on shots, I complained to the nurse practitioner that I could
eat the same thing 2 days in a row and one day be 200, the next I'd be at
50. She said, "It's not what you eat. It's the diabetes." That's the
only explanation I have as to what could be causing it.
