Who knows what his BG dipped to prior to diagnosis? It could have dipped to 50 normally and he felt fine- but after a prolonged period of time at higher levels, it feels like a low now.
Yeah, good point. I am thinking more on the lines of what FHS said. I think this is the first time my pancreas has been left "on it's own" since the attack. I think the few guys I have left just go out of control when they see some carbs. It's just weird. The lunch I had today was the leftovers from what I ate last night (and I had half the serving today as I did last night.) Last night, I peaked at 135, today at lunch, again, same exact food except smaller portion, I spiked to 240. I think I am just going to have to have my novopen ready, and if I see it's leveling out on ole Dex, leave it, and if its still rising past 150, post-bolus it. Crazy...
I can only share that there's still a lot to be learned about managing the condition, and unfortunately there is no easy solution. Lows and highs without a proper explanation to them have happened to me often too. It is frustrating, but shows all the more why we need a cure.
I would think it depends on how you feel. Seeing that you are newly diagnosed, as I am, I wouldn't think you'd already be in a position for hypoglycemic unawareness. I'd say as long as you're feeling okay with your numbers then you should be okay. I have a lot of my tests come back in the 70s, which Mike said would make him feel not so great, but I'm fine with it. Even at the lowest I've tested so far (64) I felt fine. Oddly enough, the couple of times I thought I might be low and tested I was in the mid 80's each time.
