I have a pretty awesome best friend, princessemilythefirst!!
Late Night Low(ish) - My Bed - 78 mg/dL - 3/6/2014
I don’t like going to bed under 100 so I always check right before going to bed. I was feeling a bit shaky so I got out my old friend the juice box. I’m not really used to being under 100 so 78 feels pretty low for me!
Playing with the pump to ensure bolus calculations are correct:
Dietician: Just make sure you don’t actually bolus those 50 carbs.
Me: If I do, then I’m going to McDonalds!!
Before Dinner (6:25pm) : 174 mg/dL, I had BBQ wings so it wasn’t very high carb.
After Dinner (9:22pm) : 72 mg/dL, Didn’t eat to bring my blood sugar up.
20 minutes later (9:40pm) : 98 mg/dL, “Okay cool, I came back up on my own.”
Before going to bed (12:42am) : 234 mg/dL, “How did this happen?” Corrected.
Morning (7:28am) : 103 mg/dL
I really don’t understand how I went up this high 6 hours after dinner when I didn’t eat anything since then. Diabetes is a giant roller coaster. Does anybody have any ideas of why this could happen?
Though I may be type 1 diabetic I get cravings too! #typeone #diabeticlife #chocolate
