Ugh. My blood sugar has been crazy lately! I don't know if it's just travelling or what, but on Tuesday night my blood sugar was 21.8 (392) after dinner and on Wednesday it was 24.3 (437)! Wednesday night I ate out so that's my own fault, but still! I was running high almost the entire time, so I put my basal rates up by 0.5 u/hr and that seemed to help on Thursday and Friday.
Last night I got home and was 5.6 (101) before dinner and 10.2 (184) after dinner. I was exhausted so just corrected and went to bed. I tossed and turned for what felt like hours and could not get to sleep.
Then, I'm not sure if I fell asleep and woke up again or just never fell asleep, I got up around 12:30 and felt all numb and weird and tested at 2.3 (41). I ate a bunch of glucose tablets and an All Bran bar and a small glass of "low-carb" juice.
Went back to bed and woke up this morning at 15.6 (281). Those random, really low, middle-of-the-night lows are the one time I have problems with over-treating. Still, given what I ate, 15.6 isn't bad.
I'm working all day today and also tomorrow morning. I'm hoping my blood sugar cooperates better today but the thought of eating hotel food (in my own city, the work event is at a hotel) makes me cringe, and I don't have time to organize bringing my own. It did help a lot having my own food for my trip. Next time I travel will be in a month or two and I'll definitely be doing the same thing.
