This is yesterday. I don't know if I can do it again - but I didn't think I could ever have a 24-hour period as good as this. So who knows?! I'll definitely be trying for a repeat today!
This is with eating three meals yesterday (breakfast, lunch, dinner - a total of 100 carbs), no exercise (but I did exercise the few days previously), pre-bolusing for everything by 30-45 minutes, no high GI foods (although I did eat half a cup of quinoa pasta, not sure of the GI on that), and having previously basal tested from overnight until noon. Before bed I ate half a glucose tablet, and at 4am I ate half a glucose tablet, but that's all the "low" corrections I needed.
I was sitting around all day yesterday doing noting, so this may be more challenging on a normal day, but since in the back of my mind I didn't really think I'd ever do it, the fact that I've done it is incredible. And, I am during the period when hormones are wrecking havoc and making me high, which makes this even more amazing!
My alerts are set to 4.5 (80 mg/dl) for low and 8.0 (145 mg/dl) for highs. The high alert was set to 10.0 (180 mg/dl), but I lowered it yesterday because I was doing so well.
Yesterday the highest I hit was 6.9 (124 mg/dl) and the lowest was 4.6 (83 mg/dl). This has to be the most stable my blood sugar has been since before I was diagnosed over 23 years ago! I questioned whether the Dexcom was accurate so tested throughout the day. According to my meter, the highest I tested at was 7.6 (137 mg/dl) and the lowest was 4.8 (86 mg/dl).
And now, to see if I can make something similar happen again.
