My appointment with Carrie went really well. She really liked how I printed out my Dexcom readings. It gave her a day by day glance at my roller coaster ride with the corresponding insulin doses and carbohydrate intakes.
She made a few changes:
- Increased my midnight basal from 10 to 12 units (and told me to watch to see if any lows come about)
- Took me off my simvastatin drug (yay!)
- Told me to be careful not to over-correct when low or high (because a few of my high peaks were from doing just that)
- Told me to take a partial (rather than a full) insulin dose before bed and to eat enough carbs while exercising in order to prevent lows
My next appointment isn't until January 8 (1pm) so I won't have an official A1C check until then, but according to my A1C chart an average BG of 196 is 8.5!
