A Test

Yesterday I ate approximately 33 grams of carbohydrate at lunch time. I did not take a bolus, mostly because I forgot my needle. (!!) But I figured, hey, now's as good a time as any to see how my pancreas will deal with this.

Blood sugar at dinner: 88. My pancreas (and the Lantus) totally kicked butt.

I am pleased.

I am scared to try it again, though. I don't want to work my pancreas too hard, in case it fails faster and ends the honeymoon. I don't even know if that makes sense, really.

I mean, HOW do you decide to go off insulin? It seems inordinately risky, really. But I will ask the study doc when I'm up there.

Still, for now, I am pleased.
