I have a very set routine for taking care of diabetes. I eat the same things for breakfast everyday and then get on my exercise bike and ride 3.5 miles. At lunch I eat the same thing almost everyday and then ride another 3.5 to 4 miles. This works very well for me and keeps my glucose levels in a tight range and my A1c very low.
For the past 3 days I suddenly need less insulin. The first day I had to skip exercising all day because I had too much insulin on board. The next day I took less Novolog and was able to ride in the morning, but not in the afternoon even though taking less Novolog. This morning I will go low if I ride. I hate missing my exercise. I am down to 20 units of insulin total without much exercise.
I don’t get it. My dinners haven’t changed. Tomorrow I will lower my Tresiba. I am not complaining, I like being able to reduce my insulin, I just don’t get it.
Could it be from my Moderna vaccination I received 19 days ago? I didn’t notice any changes when I was first vaccinated.
So strange, I ate oatmeal, banana, walnuts, a date, and blueberries for breakfast and returned to a 90 glucose level an hr later. I didn’t rise over 100. I took 3 units of Novolog. I did not exercise. I am holding steady at 91. This is weird.
