Today I shared with facebook what it’s like in one day of my D-life. It was a surprisingly good day BG wise, so I didn’t have to do any extra finger pricks.
Here’s a summary of my posts:
7am – Well kids, it’s officially my 6 month diaversary, so in honor of World Diabetes Day which was Thursday, I’m going to share my journey today. Fasting glucose was 119, and I’m up WAY too early.
8 am – And now for breakfast, 31 carbs, no insulin, we’ll see how this goes. On the upside, waffles with spiced ricotta, yum!
10:30 am – BG of 155 after breakfast does NOT make me happy.
12:30 pm – Finally figured out lunch, pizza quesadilla and a Texas red grapefruit. Almost 60 carbs, so I’m trying 3 units of insulin.
3 pm Post-lunch BG 121. Much more like it. Now if I could just forget that I ruined my freshly polished nail to get the reading. Sigh.
6 pm – Wanted to bake. Looked up recipes. Found one. Input all ingredients into spark people to calculate nutrition facts. I finally know that there will be 31 carbs in two biscuits. Now what else am I going to eat?
6:20 pm – Alright, another 3 units of insulin before dinner for a bowl of chili and two pumpkin biscuits. Hope they’re good!
8:40 pm – And, last BG of the day (unless something goes terribly wrong) is 118. Not too shabby. Plus I get a bedtime snack. Woot!
10 pm – And for my last trick of the day, 4 units of lantus injected before bed. One day of diabetes down, only a lifetime to go.
