POST CONSECUTIVE DAY SWIMS AND BG EXPERIMENT #1:
OMG. i survived an evening, overnight and second day of BG nightmares.i couldnt stop crashing. i turned my basal down to 90% and drank a gallon of apple cider, peacan sandies, chocolate, glucose tabs. nothing worked. i was up all throughout the night just testing and fueling. and yesterday was barely better. then, i think b/c of all the carbs i was pounding into my system to make up for all the lows, it hit me all at once at 1am (2 nights in a row, same time) : a bg of 184, and then a bg of 158 the next night. i did IM corrections which worked as usual, but then the same problem repeated itself the next day: one low after another without much success at bringing them back up.
so i lowered my basal profile. and today has been a little more successful. so far one high after an over-correction. and then i am waiting to see what today brings (especially since i didnt swim yesterday). i plan on making up the missed swim day by swimming tomorrow (something i never do, swimming on a Sunday/weekend day).
i will report back later to let you all know how my day progresses.
has anyone else had this problem??? i need helpful ideas and suggestions and Eric is away
thx in advance,
