Perfectly Paleo-Bernstein (not one speck of cheating) for the last four days. Meat, green veggies like broccoli and lettuce, water.
Tested at 10:30 this morning: 227 mg/dl (???)
Injected 48 IU of Lantus. Ate some home-cooked meat (no hidden ingredients!) and nothing else, before my guitar class (nothing but water and a few ounces of meat since last night).
Tested at 2:30 this afternoon: 279 mg/dl.
I have no idea what my body is doing – or why, or how – about 95% of the time, no matter what I read or what others tell me.
IT MAKES NO SENSE.
Put me in a room with a bed, a potty and a treadmill, wired for cameras and sound. Weigh and measure every gram of food and slide it under the door on a tray. Measure every step, every sip of water, every blip of blood glucose.
Sign me up and let the scientists figure out whatever in the heck is going on with my freakish body, PLEASE. Because IT MAKES NO SENSE.
Don’t tell me that meat has no carbs, because apparently my body can change chuck steak into pure glucose – and Lantus insulin into pure water – on a whim.
(Remember: I’m the girl who dropped over 100 points, to 36, an hour after a Lantus injection of almost the exact same dose one morning last July. Same scenario then, except I had nothing to eat – just water.)
Am I to conclude that Bernstein + insulin works for everyone else on the planet, but not me? Why not?
