I worked 9am to 2pm today and managed to avoid the carb temptation of my colleagues who enjoy “Chip Tuesday”! I stayed in the office and had my healthy lunch. I still feel my lunchtime insulin intake is too high and does not get me to 5.0, which would be the target by 6pm. I will continue to adjust.

I’ve noticed that whilst the glucose reader keeps track of my insulin intake I need to record how many units I’m taking as my memory gets confused! Getting to 7.0 before bed is also taking some getting used to.

According to my reader I have a 7-day average of 6.1, which is 43 on the new metrics. That is a lot better than 100+. I knew I had to change and I’m loving what I’m doing. Between 11am and 12pm it gets tough, but it’s only 1 hour. Between 2.30pm and 3.30pm is tough, but that has generally been because I’ve been getting below 5.0.

Messed up my levels by having a snack I shouldn’t have had plus I think I had a bit too much potato and took too little insulin. Those three combined to give a 10.7 reading which is too high but I took 38 units of glargine to compensate. I will take it as a reminder not to take liabilities and to not get complacent.

Adjust. Adjust. Adjust. Must get the exercise going too.
