86. Yay! Struggled with highs all day yesterday and corrected before bed at 156. Was planning on changing my set if it continued this morning. Guess it finally "took". Sometimes it works (sometimes it doesn't)


129...not bad...

Back from 5 mile run (8:53, a shade off last week's pace, it was quite a bit muggier...), 98 at "blast-off", glass of skim milk and some gatorade, ran up to 118. I didn't weight the Gatorade, just dumped some in. Oh well. It may also be that I have 2U left in the pump but want to get cleaned up before I change the tank?

116 best fasting BG all week! I love that number now lets see if I can keep it down.

Woke up at 4:00 AM at 11.4 (205), corrected and two hours later when I woke up at 6:00 I was 8.3 (151), bolused for breakfast and 45 minutes later was 5.1 (92) so ate. I exercised last night and did a temporary -10% basal, which I don't think I needed for some reason. I was also 14.3 (257) before bed for some reason, so maybe the correction on that didn't work fully.

5:30AM 136 fasting 12 hours d#mn dawn phenomenon

Sunday thru Thursday, fasting:
88, 99, 98, 87, 92.

Those are pretty typical. But then it begins climbing and keeps rising all day. Exercise in the evening keeps it from being too bad at bedtime. Skip the exercise and it's not so good.

124mg/dL...I think my set has some absorption issues, it's not due to be changed until tomorrow so I will probably do a bunch of small corrections today...having a CGMS is great...;-)

Last night I meant to take my 4 units of Levemir (split dose), was distracted and took Apidra instead. Ate a full cup of chocolate pudding, took 3 1/2 units of Levemir, and woke up at 4:00AM with 52 BG. Could have been worse. Didn't test this morning, just want my coffee. Darn distractions.

Close call there! Glad you're OK.

Had to leap out of bed early today for reasons not related to diabetes. Coffee sounds really nice . . . think I'll stop blathering and go make some. :)

101. this heat is really good for my fasting numbers!!
