Keep in mind I haven’t been on Omnipod this full time…but for the last 30 days my average blood sugar has been 167 with 46% in range…The last 2 weeks my average blood sugar has been 142 with 63% in range…I think that’s about how long I’ve been on the OmniPod…The last 7 days my average blood sugar has been 132 with 70% in range!!!
It’s getting better!!! The Dr did labs today, so I’m anxious to see how much it’s dropped since March. I was an 11 at that time. I’m sure it’s not going to be a huge drop yet but I think we’re starting to find my sweet spots for treatment. Currently my PCP is managing my diabetes. I go see the new Endo on July 7th. I switched from Novolog to Fiasp about 2 weeks ago. I’m also having to change my pod out every 24 hours currently due to the amount of insulin I use on a daily basis…sometimes it’s a little less than 24 hours dependent on the number of carbs I racked up for the day. Some days I cheat and allow myself to relax. If I’m counting carbs all the time I think I’ll go nuts. I want my numbers low, but I also don’t want to have to be OCD about every morsel of food that goes in my mouth. Tonight for dinner we went to a meat & three. I had roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes and mac n cheese with a small piece of peach cobbler (my downfall). I couldn’t have breakfast this morning due to bloodwork, and when I got out of there it was almost early lunch. I was getting close to 70 at that point, so I went to Dairy Queen and had a blizzard for brunch. I did have to treat another low a little later but I did that with a 16oz Mountain Dew, and then we went to dinner. Tonight for “snack” will be a protein bar to get me through the night (hopefully to ward off a low since we just increased my night up a little bit).
I’ll let you know when my A1C and labs come back.
