Morning Wake Up Readings Part 10.

Recommended Posts

GAgirl

Thanks for the new thread, blu!! Didn't test this morn since I woke up really late, but at noon, my fbg was 105...god knows what it was at 8:00am, but I got up, peed, and went back to sleep until noon.

Thanks for the new thread Blu! And I will join it with some lows.

 

04:00am 50 - ate 4g carbs

06:00am 56

 

And this was on a second lowering of my basal last night. Wonder if I should lower it again tonight or wait and see if things settle?

141 at 4 am. Bah! Humbug! That's about 40 points higher than I anticipated when I gave myself a combination correction bolus and snack bolus of 2 units at 7:30 last night after a reading of 157. Either my pasta dinner at 4:30 took a very long time to digest (with more carbs left than bolus insulin left at 7:30) or the snack had more than the eight grams carb I allowed.

 

Or is it possible that lack of sleep could have raised my BG? I've been awake since 1:30. I doubt that I got more than a total of two hours sleep.

Uff Da - the joys of not sleeping - I find my sugars rise in the morning when I get up - doesn't matter if that is very early or very late - I have DP whether I sleep or not, but it seems to be worse if I actually get up and wander around. Pasta I find is evil - it has a mind of its own and likes to mess with sugars - but it tastes nice with cheese sauce (sigh) - its my DHs comfort food so can't stay away from it totally.

88! Also note that my blood pressure is improving. Before meds it was 140/84. Respirations 66. I couldn't break 75 before. This all tells me my body is liking LCHF. Weight loss hasn't dropped below 162.5 yet, but I think I overdid the calories for 3 days because I was losing too fast. Whodda thought I'd ever have that problem? :)

My SO is Italian and is not diabetic, so it is hard to avoid having pasta occasionally. And frankly, I like it sometimes just for more variety in meals. I did have to give it up almost entirely during the year and a half I was on oral meds only, but now that I'm on insulin, it takes a lot of experimenting to discover just what I can get away with. Sometime when I'm going to be home and available to test every hour for who knows how many hours (five?) I'd like to test exactly what happens over an extended period after a pasta meal. Need to do that with some of the legume dishes I like to make, too. Would be helpful in timing the insulin and in knowing quantity limits.

100 at 2:30am, went back to bed, got up at 4:30 and I was at 121. So is this DP???? This is the second time this week I had a pretty decent reading at 2:30ish and then at 4-4:30 when I have to get up it is 120. Is my liver telling me I need to get up earlier??? I still get confused about DP. I didn't exercise last night before bed so I bet that had something to do with it too.

 

Uff - not sure if lack of sleep raises BS but anxious to see what others think because I experience that at times. Just noticed you are in Washington state. I'm just across the line in Idaho.
