Dr. whants me to try to keep my BG between 120 and 160

Is tht OK w/ you? Another question I'd ask is does your doc give you clear directions on keeping it in a 40 point range? It's pretty easy to say but can be a bit more challenging to actually do it? I have the alarms on my pump set at 70-130, which is a bit wider, but I try to keep it under pretty tight control most of the time. I will sort of drag or feel "slushy" much more than 150?

He told me I should get no higher then 160. I was dropping to Low 35 at Home and work. Since he raised Im feeling Good. I now am watched 24 hours a day to make sure. Maybe the MS is playing with me I don't know. The Diabetes Doctors are blaming MS for possible lows and MS Doctors are blaming Diabetes. After 3 weeks in Hospital they didn't know for sure

That seems pretty reasonable then? If you are having to deal with MS too, I believe that a lot of docs want you to be up a bit so they don't have to deal with hypos, etc. while they are trying to figure that out?
