[IP] never thought I'd be thankful for lows :)
Hi everyone, I am so thrilled!!! Hehe, ok I know that I *shouldn't* be
thrilled about my bg plummeting to a 46 this afternoon, but I'm glad to see
things on the low rather than high side for the first time in 3 weeks. So .
. .I have actually been having OK numbers for the last three days or so, but
I was running a temp basal of 2.0 units per hour!!!! strange. This morning
I woke up at 113 and was 81 after first period, so I lowered the basal to
1.5 but at lunch I was 178 so I changed it back, when I tested after lunch I
was 134. awesome.
But then when I was at the bank I started feeling shaky, tested and was
46!! Had the basal at 1.0 after that but was 213 before dinner (rebound
maybe?) anyway I put the basal back at 1.5 and corrected with 2 units, then
45 minutes later I was only 98. So . . .I had to eat since I already took
the bolus, but that was 4 hours ago and my basal is 1.0 again, test at 88
two hours later, and just tested at 91 now!! Woohoo! I guess my point is
that whatever it was might finally be calming down (knock on wood) because I
keep having to lower my basal to keep from going low.
Btw, I am trying a site in my thigh with a micro. So far, I really
like it, which is awesome because that gives me about 6 more rotating sites
to use. Thanks to all for the suggestions on that.
Here's hoping the craziness is subsiding. -Gianna
