Well, okay, actually diabetes is constant. But I have to wonder if Heraclitus had diabetes too, because sometimes I feel like the only consistent thing about my diabetes management is that I have to constantly adjust and readjust and . . . . change!!
For the past couple of weeks I’ve been working hard on redoing our dining room. After some intense physical labor, it’s about 93% done and looking fantastic. But combine that extra activity with a monthly hormonal swing and a cold / flu thing that hit yesterday? Hello, epic lows.
For more than 24 hours I went no higher than 111. And that graph reflects both a pizza dinner and a slice of cheesecake. Even that didn’t bring me up. Of course, today I've got a stuffy nose, a sore throat, and some stubborn germy spikes.
What’s a girl to do? Well, temp basals to the rescue. My latest post at The Loop is all about temp basals!! Dial ‘em down for those epic lows, dial ‘em up for those germy spikes. Head on over and check it out!
