Actually, that greeting sounds a lot better than my mood… I don’t know what to do anymore!
It has become a rare case that my bg goes higher than 200 or even 250. It keeps swinging around, but that’s another story and not a topic that should be discussed right here, it’s just a background information. So, I’m usually not that high up.
Except for the past 3 days and it really gets to me… I can’t seem to keep my bg under 200, no matter what I try. I think it may be due to my conjunctivitis, I know that infections can cause a high bg. But enough is enough, I’m so sick of it!
I need suggestions on what to do. Maybe someone has experienced this, too, and is able to tell me what actually works.
I increased my daily basal rate from 19 to 27, with almost no effect whatsoever.
Yesterday, I needed 15 (!) units to get my bg down from 230, although usually 5 is almost too much.
I usually wake up <100, but the last two days is was 210 and 275 and I don’t know what I did wrong.
Just now, my bg went up from 170 to 290 within 50 minutes - I didn’t eat anything but injected 1 unit (bedtime, I didn’t want to overdo it but still wanted to do something).
The only way to have a lower bg for at least a couple of hours is to overtreat the highs. Which is also bad because I drop too low and no matter how few I eat, I end sky rocketing again.
I feel like wanting to throw up all the time, I have a headache, I can’t sleep, I can’t concentrate on anything.
Additional note: I didn’t take any antibiotics, yet.
