I am getting used to the glucose monitor now, and starting to get the hang of keeping things in check a bit more.
What is driving me somewhat mad is how things can be unexpectedly inconsistent. Some nights I can be bang on normal (in the green band) all night; others droppings really low, so much so I wake up feeling ill and even have to have something to eat; but another night gradually going from too high at midnight to too low at 6am as a nice gradual drop. This is all on exactly the same insulin dosage.
Some foods have massively more impact on blood sugar than others, and the clues are on the packaging, obviously. The main peak today was eating 3 jaffa cakes, that was all, just 3.
I have pretty much decided that even if we drive to the restaurant in Bracknell, I need to make the effort to walk back afterwards even if a couple of miles, as that really does knock down my blood sugar nicely.
Though today I have had a couple of lows that I would also like to avoid.
P.S. Yes, I know crisps and jaffa cakes are a bad idea, you don't need to tell me :-)
P.P.S. Yes, it did go up a bit after that, but clearly walking made a dent!
