I recently started working part-time at a grocery store as a cashier (my first job hehe) and have been having some problems with my bloodsugars. The hours I typically work are 4pm-7pm on weeknights (right in between dinner) and 4-5 hours on saturdays/sundays. I believe that the absence of insulin in my body during those times is the cause for my high bloodsugars (around the 15-18 level- Yikes!) and I'm looking for feedback on the issue.
If I take insulin before my shift, I'm worried that I'll go low during it and make a lot of stupid mistakes. On the other hand- I don't like having high bloodsugars! Does anyone have any experience with this, and be willing to offer some suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
