Another newb here, not trying to hijack the thread, but I thought it fit in with the topic, please move me if I’m wrong.
I was diagnosed 5/1/20 and I’m still waiting on my first endo visit or any “formal” education. I’ve been reading a lot on this forum and other interweb sites. I take most of the info (outside of here) with a proverbial grain of salt, not actual salt because I’m sodium restricted, too.
I was diagnosed with a BGL of nearly 400, during a NONSTEMI heart attack (turns out I have a bad aortic valve). I have been slowly but steadily increasing pre-meal doses of Humalog and daily doses of Lantus based on a recommendation from my PCP. Along with diet, I have steadily improved my average BGL down to 125 and 42% in target (yes, I have a Freestyle Libre). I am charting both the Freestyle and One Touch Ultra readings in the app and in a spread sheet. I should note that I’m taking cereal bowl full of blood thinners, BP and cholesterol meds, too.
I told you all that to ask you this: I have what seems to me to be pretty extreme Dawn Phenomenon, a phenomenon I learned of here. It is really the only unaccounted for significant blip on my chart and accounts for about a 30 - 40 point jump every morning for about 3 hours, seemingly regardless of carb intake. Would you recommend trying to adjust my morning dosage of Humalog to compensate since DP is so consistent or should I wait another week and (finally) talk to my Endo? Thanks in advance!
