I can do it! Week 2

A couple days late, but here are my second week results (August 9-15).  I’m feeling pretty good about what I’m doing.

So here’s what I see:

  • I am testing my BG an average of 5.3 times per day (last week it was 4.5).  My poor fingers!
  • I had 4 readings above 200 this week (only 2 last week, but I did eat out a couple of times this week).
  • My fasting BG averaged 105 (last week it averaged 136). Much better!
  • I’m still having too many lows (<80) for my comfort.  These are very physically draining for me. I need to look at my data more closely, see if I can spot any trends and do some adjustments. (I need IBM Watson)!
  • Pre-bolusing seems to be working for me – and it is getting more instinctive each day.
  • I have not lost much weight (ugh).  As drastically as I think I have changed my eating and drinking habits, one would think (hope) that I’d see more of a change on the scale, too.  Ah, the frustrations of trying to lose weight when you’re over 50.

I sent two weeks of data to my endocrinologist a few days ago…still waiting on her insight (and dare I say a thumbs up).
