Having diabetes is hard enough.
It's really, really, REALLY hard.
But dawn phenom on top of the evil scourge of insulin resistance is INSANELY hard. Pull your hair out hard.
When I got up this morning my BG was sky high: 361 mg/dl. So I diligently injected 14 IU of Novolog with breakfast (I've been bumping this up all week to see what happens -- my silly doctor told me to inject "6 IU if BG is 250 or greater". Hah.)
After an hour and twenty minutes...my bg was 363 mg/dl.
What the what?!? It went UP? Like the Novolog injection never happened? Really?
Sometimes I don't even know why I bother to freaking inject freaking insulin if my body just turns its proverbial nose up at it and pretends that it's water.
How can I even figure out what my correction factor is if I inject over twice what my doctor told me to inject and it goes UP instead of down?
(Grumble...grumble...grumble...) Back to the drawing board...
