So I test and I’m 200, but I’d eaten only about a half-hour before and am about to work out, and I had some active insulin on board.
I go to the gym, work out for about 20-30 minutes then start to feel low. I reach for my meter, but oh wait, I left it on the table. Since there was no one to call, I drink some gatorade, wait 20 minutes until I feel better, then head home.
I test, I’m 458. Clearly I wasn’t low. I give myself insulin, and test 45 minutes later. I’m 503. Figure I have a bad site, change it, and give the full recommended dose. Test right after it finishes giving it (10 minutes after my 503 reading) and I’m 245. Test again, 239.
So now I am eating 8.8 units worth of food and testing every 15 minutes.
Can sugars jump like that? I’ve never experienced that much of a jump before. Is my meter bad?
