I normally have blood sugars pretty consistently in target (around 100 fasting, under 140 2 hours post prandial, around 120 at bedtime). I have occasional isolated higher numbers, occasional lows, but generally ok. But the last four days I’ve had numerous highs: several 150s and 160s after meals, a 142 fasting (which is unheard of for me, I have virtually no DP), and a 132 and 168 at bedtime (again very unusual). Just now I tested before dinner and I’m at 205!! (I was 151 two hours after lunch. What is up?
I thought of all the things I hear discussed on here: I am eating the same as usual, using the same I:C ratios. I was at the tail end of my 28 day Lantus but started a new one last night. I started a new Apidra on 10/3. It is definitely not hot here. I’m not stressed (although these numbers are starting to get to me…lol) and I’m not sick.
All I can think of is it’s the dread LADA unpredictable blood sugar or final pancreas death I hear about (I haven’t experienced any noticeable variations so far). Anybody have any theories? Suggestions? What I’m thinking is to start to increase my doses, both basal and bolus by a unit at a time. I’m nervous as I’m pretty insulin sensitive, but if these numbers stay like this it might be time. I appreciate any input!
