And I don't just mean blood sugar. No more meter issues yet. Yesterday I had a low of 56, which felt like crap. It happened after I did some excercising then hopped in our pool to cool off. I checked in before I started at 220, which usually means I can excercise and it will come down. But never down that far. I was floating around when I said to my mom "I think I'm low", the sad thing is if she hadn't been there I don't know if I would have been able to get out and what the outcome would have been. And then I turned into the hypo hoover, first a few ounces of soda, then a handful of chips, then I settled on eating a hot dog so I wouldnt be overloading on carbs. I can't stand how hungry I feel when I get that low. It's like rationally I can't just wait a few minutes for my blood sugar to come up, it's more of a "me want cookie" Cookie Monster syndrome.
Had an Endo apppointment today. Even though my HbA1c is now 10.5 up from 10.3 a month ago. The appointment was way better then the usual ones are. I was way more vocal and my mom took the backseat so to speak. We decided to try Symlin in addition to my current NovoLog and Levemir, except I will cut back my NovoLog by 1/2. This is the first step on a plan we made of trying new things to get in range, but hopefully it will be the only one we need to make. The benefits sound pretty good: less insulin, less post meal spikes, and possible weight loss. My doctor has been asking if I wanted to try this for awhile, but I was just not upto extra injections. But now I'm not going to let that get in the way of better control. So here goes nothing.
