Hello All...I'm relatively new to TuDiabetes, which is to say that I've only recently begun to interact with it although I've had a profile for quite a while... I also apologize in advance for what…Continue
I'm about a year behind you in T1 tenure, so know that my empathy is less informed, but I think it's okay to feel a little burned out each day if it isn't disruptive to your life. I vent a little bit internally to avoid…"
"That's a great question. I hesitate to exercise strenuously in the evening because of all the recommendations out there warning of lows much later when asleep, but hope to change that with the CGMS and the (even flawed) warning system I hope it…"
"Like you I think that what works is right. I just wanted to point out that sometimes we develop some strange strategies. These can make it hard for ourselves and our medical team to understand all the factors involved in our glucose management. Of…"
"I've tried that. Last time I took that route I spiked to well over 250...as I mentioned above...I ate a Balance Bar, bolused for it and a v small correction, worked out for 45min and bang! I never went low either... Bad JuJu. This morning I…"
"What about eating and bolusing before you workout? This way your body gets carbs and the liver does not have to inject additional glucose into the bloodstream (the liver has no idea you have no insulin production). In addition you will have insulin…"
"CGMS has been a great experience for me and in particular in regards to exercise because it shows where I am trending. That is going on a run at 89 and steady is different than 89 and dropping (where with the latter I would probably eat). It's…"
"Kate, I too ran into this problem and I take my thyroid medications at night (synthroid and cytomel). Studies actually show that taking it at night is best anyway because you do not eat for several hours thus it has better absorption and even though…"
"I'm gonna have to echo what Tom said..that was my first thought. Maybe you can go up two units every week or so at night until you become more comfortable with a larger Levemir dose at night and then of course after upping the nightly Levemir…"
I've tried varying things including a small bolus before working out (this works but makes me nervous and is a big distraction from actually exercising)... I don't do anything relatively intense for more than 30 minutes at…"
"Yessir... I am pretty sure I am one of the most flagrant over-users of test strips ever... If I don't believe a number it's not uncommon for me to go ahead and test 2-3 more times on different fingers, new lancet, etc... I try all the…"
Hey there Tom - thanks for the friends invite! Awesome A1C!! It took me about .... 43 years to get to that reading!!! Keep up the good work - and hope to share thoughts / ideas on all sorts of things (not just diabetes there is more to life then that - like sailing, travelling, sipping wine, throwing a frisbee ....)
