I am having troubles right now with too many lows.I have reduced my TTD and I get very discouraged easily.I hate how a BS reading of more than 11mmol makes me feel.I need some words of encouragement as I try to find the right settings.If I at least stop the lows I can correct them and go from there.I have Pumping Insulin by John Walsh where it tells you how much to reduce your TTD but my pump totals aren't on the chart as I am on a small amount of insulin.
I have been eating a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter with my meals and I have been having exceptionally good readings,especially breakfast.I never realized peanut butter could be so helpful on controlling my blood sugars.I don't have a weight problem so the few grams of fat I get aren't a problem.I downloaded my blood sugars and I had 65% in range of my target.

I saw my endo today and my A1C is still too low so I increased my target range hoping to avoid lows and that my A1C will go up a little bit.I thought the whole purpose of staying healthy is to accomplish an A1C under 7.0 to avoid any complications.I still have a clean bill of health.This is 27 years living with diabetes.I couldn't be more thankful..
My insurance company has taken the test strip limit ban off of my file.I no longer am restricted to 2400 test strips a year and can order as I need them.This has been such a worry about not being able to test when I need to.With having diabetes for so long I have hypoglycemia unawareness and it is difficult to sense when I am low,especially during work.Thank God!!
