Before my sugar levels were in a roller coaster, up, down, sideways and over the top [aka off the scale]. And now I’m almost on the right level, waking up with 6.0 mmol and the rest of the day around 8 or 9 mmol. [Okay I slipped once to 14.3 mmol for old time sake.] Of course I still have to fine tune the bolus amount, but I’m getting there.
Dr 2 called early on Friday evening to let me know he was having a dinner party that evening, and he wouldn’t call before bed time, but in case of emergency I could call him, which of course I didn’t do. Over the weekend I didn’t need to wake up in the middle of the night to measure the blood sugar level, which was fine by me, at last I could sleep undisturbed, or so I thought. Of course I woke up somewhere during the night because the level was too low, to me it shows itself as if my stomach is turning around. A few glucose tablets took care of that.
Another change is that I don’t wear my glasses, to watch TV or drive around town at the moment. I don’t need the minus 1.75 at this time, but I do need reading glasses of plus 2 ! The plus glasses can be bought anywhere for 5 euro or less. [a little over $6] The pressure on the lens is different, I’m not sure if it will last in the long run, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
For the coming weeks I’m of the daily check with Dr 1, we just have contact on Tuesday and Friday morning. She’ll gives the results to Dr 2 and my regular specialist. So now it’s time for… a glass of water, I noticed I didn’t drink enough fluids as I did before.
