So, I’ve been having my usual through the roof stress at work (actually, probably more than usual) and haven’t been getting enough sleep, which was driving my fasting sugars through the roof (up in the 180s range from my 120-130 normal) and significantly increased morning insulin requirements. All of a sudden, with the cold that’s been sort of hanging on for a month kicking into slightly higher gear, it’s like I’m injecting water instead of insulin. 6 units, which will usually drop me 60-80 points in the AM and 300+ at night (I’m guessing, never having tried it under normal circumstances) is doing nothing. I’ve almost doubled my Lantus and am taking 3-4x my normal bolus, and it’s like taking water. The lowest I’ve been today is 133. Spent most of the day in the 150-170 range.
Switched pens, switched, needles, etc. Doc said more exercise, but felt too lousy today to do that.
Anyone else ever have that sort of insanity?
Oh well, going to shoot up more “water” and hit the sack.
