I had an awesome day on Wednesday.
Started out a little high (179 mg/dl), dropped into range and stayed there most of the day. I had three lows, two of them at terribly inconvenient times (before basketball and before my drive home). The rest of the day was awesome feedback that I was doing things right.
I ended the day with a homemade fruit smoothie.
That I didn’t bolus for.
Yep, that’s right. I had over 50 grams of carbohydrates, and didn’t take any mealtime insulin for it.
I just had a feeling…I call it D-Instinct.
In this case I felt like I had been fighting lows, that I had not been experiencing my normal mealtime spikes, and that I worked real hard at basketball for the second day in a row.
It worked out great, this time. I started at 88 mg/dl. A little more than an hour later I was at 111 mg/dl. Three hours later I was at 148 mg/dl. I ended up landing at 132 mg/dl much later in the night. Not too bad!
Don’t worry though – I have another post coming up soon that covers the other side of this coin…
