My morning reading was higher than I’d like at 7.5 because of being low the night before and eating. Regular readers will know it’s a two reading consequence when a mistake is made. I thought 7 units would be enough for an accurate adjustment but it wasn’t so I adjusted again at lunch (where I ate no bread) to get back to normal. This worked fine and I came in at 5.1 at tea.
The challenge at tea is to get to 7.0 or thereabouts by nightfall from wherever I start. Currently I calculate I need 3 units of insulin per wholemeal bread bun and 3 units per banana. This meant 9 units for the meal to get back to 5, therefore taking 2 units less to raise my levels towards 7 which is the target range. It felt good to come in at 7.2 before bed and I took 30 units of glargine.
Tomorrow I start a Football coaching course which lasts for 4 days. I will do more exercise than normal so it will be interesting to see what this means for my readings.
