Excitement, Excitement, Diacrap, Sadness and Dr. Lips

Excitement #1: tomorrow I have an appointment to start up my CGM. Fingers crossed that it will help to give me some insight with when my afternoon lows start so I can figure out the correct basal. I live alone so night time lows can be really nerve racking and I hope it will help me to wake up before I get to looooooooooooooow.Excitement #2: right after my cgm appointment I am driving down to Maryland with my mom and oldest niece to visit with my brother for Easter and vacation week.  Really…See More

"I hate it when he sneezes like that - I also hate it when my endo changes my numbers. I've learned to slightly adjust my own numbers to bring it up or down (with my endos permission)"

Giraffe Sneezes

Last week I had an Endo appointment. I have been chasing a low around for the past month and getting really frustrated about it. My endo decided to tackle it head first by changing all of my insulin to carb ratios, my sensitivity factor and all except 1 of my basal rates. So the past 3 mornings I have eaten the same exact breakfast I bolused for the 30 carbs: the first I was high 2 hours after breakfast, the second morning (yup, you probably guessed it) LOW 2 hours after, this morning 96 just…See More

Dear Grammy,

For a year, I've been keeping a secret from you, well, you probably know by now that I was dx as a type 1 diabetic 3 days short of 1 year ago. We didn't want to worry you as you have seen what type 2 diabetes did to your half sister. You were so confused that we knew you wouldn't know the difference. See I thought I had the stomach bug I had started throwing up on that Thursday afternoon and then on Saturday afternoon my neighbor Kathy found me outside trying…

Every Saturday I end up having a low right before lunch. Today I was 95 before breakfast and 105 after, then 48 before lunch.

I have tried eating more protein with breakfast, eating more carbs for breakfast. Eating a snack mid morning and still I end up low every Saturday.

All of the other days of the week I tend to land around 90 before lunch.

After I eat lunch on Saturday I am back in range and usually stay there so I don't want to lower my units of Lantus as it would make…
