Yes, your right Jen. I spoke with a Doc about it today and he found it reasonable that increased stability caused increased symptomatology.
That level of stability was a fluke for me. I kinda doubt that it will pop up again in the next twenty years, but if it does, I will know to exercise caution. Its already passed and my numbers returned to more typical (less stable) behavior. I’m fine with that. I feel ‘normal’ again.
It is super confusing. I, too, would have expected to feel ‘better’ with increased stability. But, I also can recognize situations where that is not the case. So, I appreciate you guys talking about it with me. I know it sounds counter intuitive and strange.
I talked about this with the Doc today. He brought it up because I rode my bike an hour to my appointment and my blood pressure and sugars were high (300). But, I felt physically great. It was a beautiful ride and I felt physically strong. I wanted to bike another hour. He suggested that I might be pumping adrenaline (which might make me feel physically good and strong, but might also be bumping my numbers high). That happens a lot when I ski. When I am really skiing at my best, I tend to run high. I cannot say, for sure, why this happens. But, maybe my body is ‘helping’ me by kicking out sugar. I also see this effect on days where I wake up feeling great - full of energy and super productive. I tend to be ‘kicking energy’ in some way that causes huge BG spikes.
These things have long puzzled me. I think I will choose to think of them as the invisible, magical diabetes forces that help me do things, but also screw with BG stability.
Thanks for checking in. Let me know if you ever encounter something similar and we’ll put some additional thought into it.
