Re: [IP] moms untie and basal question
I agree with Randall--the list is fraught with unneeded tensions a the
moment. As a fellow caregiver I'm now being suspected of not even having
children over a post where I was really, truly just trying to be supportive
and remind everyone that we really have to care for the caregivers too.
Although I've written that person individually with apologies etc I'm feeling
very saddened about where we have landed. Time for a group breather I think.
So on an entirely different note....drum roll.....
I'm wondering how often people are finding their basals change significantly.
My nighttime basals have been wonderful at keeping my bloodsugars within
15mg of their bedtime values and now I could go to sleep at 100 and wake at
200. As a child I recall dealing with Dawn Phen. but it hasn't been a
problem for ages....can it come and go? Is it back? *Jaws theme music in
background* Last night I tested at 11, 1, 3, 5, and 7 and it was pretty much
a gradual increase throughout the night which might indicate that it's just
inadequate basals (though I did treat a slight low with protein before bed).
Most nights I'm steady to my 3am test and then high (150-170) at 7am (I
wasn't testing at 5am). My AICs run around 6 so this feels high to me! Also
my schedule has only gotten busier so I'm suprised that I need more
insulin...I thought I'd be lowering all of them. Maybe stress? But why then
am I not running higher during the day? I suppose it's simply an unspecified
change in insulin requirements...it just seems very sudden.
Any ideas or experience with similar phenomena be much appreciated!!!
