I went to bed last night shortly after midnight. I'd been eating for a couple of hours trying to get my blood sugar up, and I thought I'd finally done it.
I woke up briefly around 7 am, noted that my blood sugar was slightly low, didn't do anything about it, and woke up again at 9 am when my mother checked on me. At that point I needed to go to work, so I skipped breakfast. Lunch made me high, probably because it was my first meal of the day, and I didn't correct it because I had taken insulin and because I knew I was going for a walk after work (a friend is training for a 5K and I walked with him and then by myself). I took 12 units when I was about half a mile from home and still around 190. Came down a bit before I ate, ate too much at one sitting, and am now going down again. I had raised my Lantus dose back to 7 units Friday night and kept it there Saturday and Sunday nights, but I just took 6 tonight.
Anyways, I wanted to show this Dexcom graph mostly because it shows me going LOW and coming up without treating it, and I do not have much of any insulin resistance today; the high from lunch did not keep climbing. This is pretty typical for what happens after I am low in the night.
