Lows, Lows, and More Lows

In case you couldn't tell by the title, I have been bombarded with blood sugar lows for the past few days. I mean, crazy stuff. Last night I had dinner, (120 pre-meal, which is higher than I've seen in a while, but I blame the tasting of the food beforehand) and did the dishes afterward, and BAM! One hour later, I'm at 49. Ouch. I didn't issue a correction dose or anything.

You know, it's not like the dishes are strenuous exercise or an unusual occurrence.

The day before that, it was like I could not get out of the 60's, and so I lowered my Lantus dose a couple of units. Still, yesterday was bad.

Today I am continuing the lower Lantus and also adjusting the Novolog carb ratio, so I take less.

All of this, while annoying, is actually very encouraging, because it might just mean the study drug is helping.....the administrator did say some people lowered their doses a couple of months post infusion, which would (Some people lowered or went off right after infusion too.)

Here's to a healthy pancreas! (Or at least a healthier one...)

In other news, really like my new PCP. Bonus.
