The last couple of months have been hard for me with my diabetes. Medications and illnesses which needed the medications have kept me in the higher bs ranges regardless of what I did.:o( I know my doc will not be happy at my A1C when I see him next (My 90 day average is 147 where it was 121). For now though, I seem to be doing ok withwith my pod, but at the moment, one thing has me frustrated. I can not seem to manage my bs when I eat pasta! I was 76 before dinner last night and ate some alfredo pasta at home. Before bed which was approximately 3.5 hours later, I was 127. Not too shabby. I woke up this morning and I was 466!!! This happens on a regular basis when I eat pasta and I can't seem to figure it out. Are you supposed to do an extended bolus like you do when you eat pizza?
Also, I didn't think it mattered when you ate, your bs should stay in normal range. I find if I eat later in the evening, my bs in the morning is high. If I eat at a normal time they are fine in the morning. In both scenerios my bs before bed is normal. It is just frustrating and I want to control this wonderful (enter sarcasim here) disease we all share. I have an appointment with my doc late next month but dont want to wait that long since I do have left overs in my fridge :o) Any ideas?
