[IP] Blood Sugar Crazies
I have been having some really weird problems with my blood sugars. I hate
to bother everyone with these details, but I'm really frustrated and stumped.
I know everyone has lots of fluctuations, but this is getting ridiculous!!
Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. If you could email me
personally I would really appreciate it! Thanks.
1) The other day I had dinner at 7:15pm (at a restaurant) - fish, pasta with
red sauce. No liquor, 2 bites of tiramisu, no coffee. I ate nothing after
dinner. (No other factors - i.e, exercise, that time of the month, etc.) At
10:15pm I tested 91. At 4am, I was up to 292!! (Incidentally, after a bolus
of 3.5 units, I tested 88 at 8:45am.)
2) I tested 143 at 9am. I ate NO BREAKFAST. At noon, I tested HI the first
time (i.e., over 600!), then retested and was 347, then again and was 289!!!
(However, a few days later I tested, without eating at all during this
period, 81 at 8:45am, then 86 at 10:25am and 76 at 11:45am. Again, no
exercise, etc. What is that about!?)
3) At 1:50pm I tested 174. I ate nothing, but napped a bit. At 4pm I
tested 284. (I ate mainly some bread at lunchtime - nothing high in fat.)
4) Another day for lunch at 1pm I ate 1/2 banana (and took .8 units) and a
chicken breast sandwich on grainy bread (took 1.7 units - my ratio is about
1:15). At 3:45pm I tested 306 and 343!
5) Crazy as it sounds, re: point #1, another night showed my basals were
okay!! I tested 120 at 9:35 pm (the previous boluses were 2.8 units at 6:50,
.7 units at 6:55, and 1.3 units at 7:45pm). I ate nothing else, and awoke at
8:30 am with a blood sugar of 69!!
I feel like I need to do more basal rate testing... particularly overnight,
which I absolutely hate! Any thoughts??
