I haven't been swimming in over a week and hope to get back to it today. I've been working madly on my thesis this week trying to get part of it finished before the holidays. I'm hoping to go tonight and hoping it might help my blood sugar a bit!
Lately my blood sugar has been crazy, lots of random highs and lows. Last night I went to bed at 5.7 (103). I went to bed super early (7:30) because I was sooo tired—long week at work! As a result I woke up at 5:30 in the morning. Tested at 14.8 (266). Not sure if I was that high all night or what. So I corrected that and went back to sleep. Woke up at 8:30 at 2.2 (40). So I ate some glucose tablets and had breakfast and was 10.7 (193) after breakfast. Corrected that, but now (before lunch) I'm still 10.8 (194). I really don't understand why one correction will work way too much and the next won't work at all!
I have had lots of days lately where the graph on my meter shows zero readings between the lines. Although yesterday during the day was great, I thought maybe I had it fixed (the previous two days were zero days).
I'm getting an A1c done in the next few weeks and have no idea what it will be (my last one was 7.3%). According to my meter my 90-day average is 8.8 (158) which I think is pretty close to what it was last time, but that is a huge mixture of highs and lows. I've definitely been having more lows the past few months than I've had in the past, so my A1c may be lower just because of that, but that's not really a good thing.
