My blood sugars have been excellent over the past half a week or so. I'm still using lots of insulin, but my readings have been great. I've been using Diabetes Pilot to manually log everything, including all my food (including calories and other nutritional information), glucose, insulin, exercise, weight, and blood pressure (it's up and down so I'm supposed to monitor it), and any related notes like site changes. Logging has not been that hard since I can do it from my computer or the DP iPhone app, and since foods can be groups into meals and I tend to eat the same meals over and over again which makes entering that information as simple as one click. I'm hoping I will continue it since I really like this program in addition to the data I can download from my pump.
I woke up at 1:00 AM last night with a low of 3.2 (58 mg/dl). Even though that's a mild low, I've been running kind of high lately and had ZERO lows for like a month, so I really felt it. I ate literally 90 grams of carbohydrates as treatment! I intended to bolus for it but fell asleep before I could. I was sure I'd wake up this morning in the low 20s (350-450) since that's what's happened in the past when I've eaten so much to treat a nighttime low without a bolus. But when I woke up I didn't feel high at all, and I was only 7.3 (131 mg/dl). Eating that much without a bolus and not going high is just crazy! These are the lows that I find kind of scary, because what would have happened if I hadn't woken up and eaten the equivalent of a large meal for treatment?
I did exercise last night, but I'd set my basal rate to -10% for eight hours as usual. I've done that every time I've exercised the past week or so and never had any kind of crazy low like that, so I have no idea where it came from!
