I don't know what I am doing wrong... and I'm getting so frustrated!
So here is the break down:
Last night 30min of strenght excersises 1hr before bed
I wake up in the middle of the night: 2am-> 58mg/dL
eat my usual small apple
wake up: 7am-> 158mg/dL (higher than usuall after having a low so early in the AM)
anyway don't think much of it, do correction of 1.10U
eat breakfast: 7:45am-> 148mg/dL (2g of Carbs)1.50U
get ready to leave for school (30min bike ride): 8:30am-> 138mg/dL 0.05U
15min into bike ride: 0.10U
get to school, test: 68mg/dL I don't eat or drink anything (I know this is low but I know my BG's go up on their own in the AM)
I test 45min later: 167mg/dL 1.30mg/dL
I have a Dexcom so I keep looking at my readings and its all between 160-175mgldL.I gave myself a total of 2.00U in the span of 2hrs
Test for lunch at 12:05pm-> 197mg/dL 2.00U and only eat almonds (8g Carbs)
Test again at 1:55pm-> 148mg/dL 2.25U eat lunch (17gCarbs)
Test at 3:25pm (before workout)-> 168mg/dL no insulin
30min eliptical workout
after workout 98mg/dL
begin my bike ride home
20min in I test-> 58mg/dL eat half a fruit bar
Test for a super early dinner: 4:45pm-> 97mg/dL 3.65U (26g Carbs)
Decide to take a nap at 6pm, so I give myself 0.80U as a precautionary
Wake up at 6:45-> 123mg/dL 0.3U
Have a snack at 7:00pm 0.55U (6g Carbs)
Tst at 7:0pm: 172mg/dL 0.85U
Test at 8:10pm: 186mg/dL 0.85U
That is a total of 18.55U with 6.50U being just for corrections!!!
I've basically consumed 50g of carbs today!
and now its 8:35 and my Dexcom is showing a reading of 196mg/dL and rising WHAT!!!!!
Oh I forgot to mention that I take symlin with every meal and snack (120 for meals and 60, sometimes 120 for snacks)I have also increased my insulin intake by about 10%
This is basically how its been all week! I don't get it, I'm working out regularly (30min-90min 4-5days/week), taking symlin, taking an increase amount of insulin!
Gosh! you know what T1D is not the worst disease one could have but it sure as hell is the MOST FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Any thoughts or suggestions would be great! Could I be a Type2 now? I've heard that Type1s could become Type2s if they gain weight....?
This is my finals week and I am not stressed or anything but I REALLY want to do well and so I need good BG's
