is it possible to go low from basal?
i have 2 units of levemir at 930am, along with 1 unit of novorapid for my 24-50 gram carb brerakfast.
i have lunch at about 2pm, low carb so i dont have to inject. i dont like to inject for lunch because then i cycle to work about 25 minutes and dont want to go low on my bike. when i get to work i check bg to make sure im where i want to be.
i inject 9 units of levemir at 7pm and usually eat about 5 -10 grams of carbs, usually full fat greek yogurt or a piece of fruit or some squares of dark chocolate. i continue to work till ten pm. i am a teacher so im moving around a classroom but not doing anything really active.
when i leave i check again. if im under 110, i have a glucose tab or two. today i was at 123 so had nothing. i got home and im at 62. how can i drop so much if im just cycling for about 20 minutes and then walking for another 15 minutes?
i know ydmv and i might get the advice to lower the evening basal but then i wake up too high!
does anyone have the magic answer for me?
