After my error last night where my night reading was 4.9, I awoke at 10.1. I corrected at breakfast by taking 8 units of insulin and have calculated that each unit of insulin gets me down about 1.2 m/mol. At lunch I was 5.2 so that worked well.
My tea reading was 7.7. My calorie count was fine but I’ve noticed if I have a protein bar I need to take 2 units of insulin to gobble up the few carbs it contains. A night reading of 6.9 showed my evening calculation was spot on.
A few friends have voiced surprise that I’ve stuck this out. In the past I might have got frustrated at this apparent lack of faith, but on reflection I note that nobody will have faith you can achieve something they have not seen you achieve before. What matters is your own ‘how’ and ‘why’. View any surprise you encounter as a compliment because they can see the positive changes you have made having the desired impact.
