Honeymoon Over (I think)


I haven’t bounced back to where I was pre-exams with regard to my insulin dosages. Which makes me think that my honeymoon phase for my diabetes is over.

I am having to inject slightly more long-acting insulin and my meals need extra short-acting insulin as well.

This has thrown my old carb counting out and turned meal times into a bit of a guessing game when it comes to dosages of insulin. I have gone hypo a few times from over injecting, which is still one of the worst feelings ever but has at least given me the chance to eat some Ferrero Rocher chocolate  (which has been sitting on my table for 3 months)!

I have just started doing a food diary for my dietitian so she can calculate my correct dosages for meals. This requires me to check my glucose levels constantly, my poor fingers are going to be sore for the next 5 days!

I am going later to get blood taken to check my HbA1c (3 month average for my glucose levels), a little nervous as it’s been harder to control my levels now. Then I will be off to go see the Endo and see what he thinks.

Next week or two will be interesting!
