Re: [IP] Time for an overhaul?
Hi Mary Jean,
I frequently have the same problem. I can't find any pattern to it
For instance, the other night before dinner I had a BG of 86. My meal
consisted of a lamb chop, salad w/ranch dressing, dinner roll
w/margarine and diet drink. Only 40 carbs there. I normally use a
ratio of 1:10 Humalog but because I was starting out a little low, I
only used 2 units (half of normal). 1-1/2 hours after dinner, I checked
my BG and it was 74 (I lost 12 points)! Where did the carbs go? Why
didn't the protein and fat in the meat make any difference? I struggled
until after midnight that night to get my BG to stay up between 100 and
120 -- I live alone so I don't like to go to bed with anything near a
low/hypo. I was also pretty sedentary this particular night.
Most of the time things act like normal and my insulin/carb ratios work
fine (apparently the insulin doesn't need adjusting) ... but when things
go like this it makes me wonder what is wrong, too. I guess there is
some comfort in just knowing that I'm not the only one that experiences
If you find a solution -- let me in on the secret! <BG>
I'd really like to know if anyone else has ever experienced something
