My numbers have been in range 100% of the time today. Dex has been incredibly accurate and my finger sticks have pretty much lined up with the sensor readings.
The other night I tested something: to see if a different insulin would give me steadier after dinner blood sugars. Typically Apidra works much faster than the protein in my meals, so I end up going low and then rebounding up much higher than I want several hours afterward. When I gave myself Novolog I avoided the low and my blood sugars stayed much smoother until about midnight. I then had to do a 2 unit correction, so my thought is that perhaps I needed an extra "extended bolus" for that meal.
I am trying it again tonight with steak, to see how the Novolog does. I seem to be dropping from a pre-dinner correction, so I'll wait it out.
If I can keep having days like today until my next appointment, I'll have a lower A1C for sure! Every day counts!
