So yesterday and today, my insulin needs have suddenly decreased. I’m not running low exactly, just significantly lower - waking in 70s (Libre shows 60s-70s overnight) where I was in 90-110s, and I didn’t even bolus for a clementine @4pm, and my line is flat in the 80s (which makes me think I might have gone low had I not eaten something).
My question is this: my son was in the hospital from yesterday morning til this morning (he’s ok now; on the mend), so I was more active than usual, holding him a lot (he’s about 35 lbs lol), and walking all over the hospital, a couple trips to the house, to the store, etc. My guess is I’m running lower due to increased activity, so now that we’re back home, and that activity level will likely decrease, would you go ahead and dose less basal tonight? I dose 4us Tresiba, so would do 3u - but then there’s Tresiba’s longer action time to consider.
I’ve also had a pretty consistent headache since this all started. I’m again just guessing it’s due to current circumstances, but just curious if anyone gets headaches when they’re running lower than usual?
