Re: [IP] premenopausal swings

I'm 54 and hope to be premenopausal...soon.  However, my bg's jump sky high
from the time I ovulate to when my period starts.
This has been my pattern for the past couple of years.
My endo increased my basal rate .3 units for the two weeks before my period.
For the first time in years
my 14 day average is the same as my 30 day average.
I know this is a difficult time and watching the swings is not pleasant
either, but hang in.
