Thanks so much for your replies already!
i have restricted my food a lot today, and so far so good. No breakfast, granola bar at 10am (which i bolused for) and i stay stable at 11-12. What i have found helps is i set my high alarm up to 14, and that number not being yellow helps a lot with accepting it. the power of colours!
@Terry4 fasting is a good idea, but not really possible as i will have exams in the afternoon. leaving out breakfast is doable for me, but lunch really not. the other concern i have there is the idea of kinda punishing my body for "bad" BG with food deprivation. don't think this is really a good thought in the long run, but i see how some people might benefit from it.
@Rick i see your point but the high bg at night is not really my #1 concern, plus i don't feel comfortable changing something so drastic one day before the exam. the changes in tresiba really do take a while.
@Jen thanks so much for your reply! it means so much talking to people who get it!! as mentioned above, playing around with tresiba so late is probably not the most productive thing, and yeah, times like these are the ones i miss having a pump. i am considering going back in the long run, however i did not expect i would run into such problems so suddenly. maybe earlier is better?
@WestOfPecos i calculate corrections with a factor of 1 unit brings me down 2 mmol/L (36mg/dl). Since i have stopped correcting more or less that falls away, however i really think the problem is more the bolus factor. either i use a factor that is just too high atm or i really have some sort of gastric emptying delay, may it be short or long term. (really not hoping for the latter )
i think i really just need to stick to low or easy carbs until exams are over and move on from there. defo gonna talk this over with my endo... the really hard thing is just not correcting, i am flatlining completely at around 12, and it is so easy to just give in and expect those flat numbers at a lower level, but i really just dont want to risk that agian!!
hoping the odds stay in my slight favor for the next few days
