The overnight adjustment worked well from yesterday. I opened at 5.8 and had 3 units. At lunch I was 6.0, which I think is ok but i will take 4 units tomorrow and see if that brings me in at the correct level at lunch. I was pleased with my lunch reading to tea reading.
At tea I was 5.7 and adjusted to 5 units as yesterday I had come in high. I came in a little high once again at 8.3. I took 30 glargine units, possibly 32 was the right level, however, I will simply go from 3 to 4 if I need a quick adjustment in the morning. An explanation may be that I bought some new baking potatoes that are a better sized for 1 per meal but I think may contain more carbs or slightly different carbs. I will be returning to my old type once they are used up.
My calorie intake remains at about 1200 – 1400 a day, meaning I need exercise to prevent my body storing fat and keep it burning. That’s on the menu for tomorrow.
