|Time||Sugar Reading||Food Eaten||Insulin Units Taken|
|Tea||5.4||Roast Dinner with Roll||11|
Today I was very disciplined with my food and I even went to a Football match and did not eat anything. Sugar readings aside it was a real success and I didn’t really feel hungry.
At tea my reading was, as you can see from the table, 5.4. I took 11 units thinking it would see my at around 7 at 11.00pm. I came in at 4.8, which was much lower than anticipated. This forced me to eat a bread roll as 4.8 is too low. I ate it under duress and would rather have not had to eat it.
I know the roll will increase my sugar to around 8 and I took 26 units of glargine which will then return me to below 7.0 in the morning. I’ll adjust again towards lunch and note that at tea that particular meal is 9 units or perhaps even 8 to get to my target range of 7.
