At breakfast I took at extra unit of insulin, 4 in total, coming in at lunch at 4.8. I had planned to eat Tortilla wrap, chicken breast and a banana for lunch but I forgot to defrost a chicken overnight so made do with something I could prepare before work and had scrambled eggs with a wholemeal roll. This was 605 calories so far, so I was able to enjoy a full roast in the evening.

Between lunch and tea I checked my readings at 3.30pm and found my sugar to be 7.5. My tea reading was 5.8 so I took what I thought was enough for my tea. As I’d only had about 1100 calories so far I allowed myself a treat of an extra wholemeal bread roll. I clocked in at 10.50pm at a high 10.1, despite upping my insulin to 8 units. Very frustrating.

I am confused on why I am taking the same insulin with the same meal and coming in higher than I was a few weeks ago by some distance. The only thing I have changed is the potato which I am not even bothering to eat the last one, it’s going in the bin and I’ll be buying my normal ones. Maybe the potato and the batch of Morrison’s brown wholemeal rolls are different in some way. I’m eating the same milk, the same food and almost the same meals. I just don’t get it! I will get it right tomorrow hopefully.
