Insomnia all week. Fighting lows all day yesterday nothing drastic just running in the 60-70 range all day I know I didn't eat enough for my activity level yesterday. Finally get stable then can sleep I got a lot to do today so no sleep during the day which will not make me a happy camper. Just frustrated I need to take some time and meditate but as HHDL haas said sleep is the best meditation.

I have had my own stretchs of chronic lows. When that happens, I switch it up a bit. For example, I may inject one less unit than I typically would. Better to be a tad higher than my ideal than risk a low. You keep your numbers nice and tight--- so a little adjustment to get you through is still going to be well within the healthy range. Also, lack of sleep does impact BG --so HHDL may have had diabetics in mind when he came out with that statement.

Oh those STUPID lows for DAYS! I'm really sorry I know how you feel about that. Wanna know another thing that upsets me to no end? Having those blasted lows eating to get your sugar back up then after an hour your at 3 or 4 hundred! I know I just eat enough to bring it back up (or get some "real" coke to do it. But that blasted gasteroprasis says I eat more even on a dual wave bolus!
