That’s it, I’m done! I woke with a bg of 6.9 (124) this morning. I decided to take a unit of insulin before breakfast, and waited fifteen minutes before eating for my sugar to drop. I ate a sandwich - 2 slice of low GI bread and a meat spread. Two hours later my BG was 10.3 (185). I decided (unwisely, it turned out) that I needed another unit of insulin. An hour and a half later, I’m sitting at 3.6 (65).
I can’t take this rollercoaster any more. I’m up and down, I can’t function, I can’t think straight, I’m scared to eat and scared to exercise and tired. I thought that after going to see the doc again and starting the new medication things would be better, but they’re still the same.
I’ve finally decided that I need to see an endocrinologist. I’m getting the contact details for a guy in a nearby town. I’m going to get the GAD, C-peptide and HbA1c done. Maybe if I finally have a bit more clarity about what the actual problem is that is causing my wonky BG’s, I can get onto the right diet and meds and start living a normal life again.
