MDI Tresiba, Novolog and Novolin R
63 yrs old
No pump possible
Basal at 1.2 units don’t feel I can split that.
I wake up and within an hour I go up 30-45 higher than my norm of 90 - 100.
I have monitored for two weeks at night 3,4 5 am. Just at 5am I see little rises of say 8-10 levels…then bam up 30-40 higher.
After eating (with bolus) I rise right back up to whatever number happened to be with the first morning rise.
The starts to happen 3.5 hours from my last meal and bolus. It happens at breakfast, lunch and dinner…
Maybe my system changed…and I need a bolus after I eat.
I eat low carb and the same meal each day with tiny modifications. I know my numbers and carb counts.
I never had this happen before about three weeks ago. Seeing as I eat the same meal and my numbers were really stable and in range this new spike is strange.
My basal is perfect at night that I am aware of I do random different hour checks. Yes I am a vigilant one.
I just don’t get this new rise and the same rise occurring after each meal?
Looking for possible answers.
Should I bolus at the rise or before?
Is this what a pump would solve more easily by adjusting?
Honeymoon is ending and this is A possible result part of the dynamic of diabetes life?
I take Novolin R for meals.
I rarely take Novolog unless I have a really big major spike which with low carb only happens when I try a new food and made a judgement error.
