When I was diagnosed in May of this year, my a1c was 8.6. Today, it was 5.4. To say that I’m proud is an understatement!
For these past 7 months, I’ve managed with Metformin, Glipizide, and a low carb diet. Because pregnancy hormones cause rapid changes in bg for many people, my numbers have been steadily rising (though I have kept the same tight control over my diet). My endo suggested adding in Humalog at a 1:10 dosage. I’m super new to this - perhaps this is backwards, but I am actually so very excited that I have access to this tool. Especially with morning sickness - the fact that my food options will open up is just very exciting and a huge relief to me.
So - any tips for a total newbie? Would you keep going with a mostly low carb diet? I don’t usually go low bg-wise, but because I am new, I’m worried about over-dosing. Any favorite apps to calculate carbs, or do you ever wing it? My endo suggested that generally winging it would be ok, but that makes me nervous!
