I posted in another thread that I was at the beach and had a dramatic lowering of my blood glucose. People thought it might be the heat, but I’m posting it here because I wonder if this is the famous LADA pancreas kicking in I’ve heard so much about.
I’m not talking about a bit lower numbers. I’ve been eating more carbs and bolusing less and I’m ending up with lows! Then, most dramatic of all one day I went for lunch and ordered homemade ravioli that I figured I could eat with these lower numbers (normally even if I bolused my maximum 3 units I’d maybe be in target, but most likely high). When I went to bolus when my food arrived I bent the needle when I attached it to the pen. I had only thrown one needle in my frio when I went out. So I decided to see what happend. I started out at 87 and two hours later was 76!! Just to make sure it wasn’t a slow rise due to fat in the sauce, I took it another hour later and then right before dinner (five hours later) I was only at 86!
Have any of you LADA’s experienced the kicking in of the pancreas and so dramatically reduced insulin needs? If so, did you cut back or eliminate bolus/cut back or eliminate basal? How long did it last? Thanks. This is so cool! (But I’m back from my trip now so I’ll see if it was really only the heat!
