My basal needs dropped and I found myself watching Levemir cover my high protein meal of chicken and broccoli.
I dropped dose to 6 units Levemir at midnight and went down to 64 overnight (Dex woke me up). A little glucose brought me up to 94 and I dropped Levemir to 5 units at 8am. After that, it seemed to be holding steady.
I've never seen this before but hopefully it's the start of improving my 6.7 a1c? Or perhaps it's just female hormones trying to mess with me. Either way, I was pleasantly surprised to not have to deal with blood sugar spikes overnight.
This is also a good reminder to keep an eye on how your blood sugar is reacting, even and especially when you're tempted to just continue what you're doing and throw your diabetes on the back burner. Diabetes is like a child -- sometimes it cries for attention, and sometimes it's so quiet you begin to wonder what kind of trouble it is getting into. It's up to YOU to keep an eye on it!
