I'm use to taking thirty to thirty-five units of insulin per day. Yesterday I took a staggering 50.25 units of insulin, mentally that is very tough for me to see. I would be a lot more accepting of the fifty units if I had more than two blood sugars below 200 all day. My usual blood sugars of 130 and 100 were replaced with obscure numbers like 276 and even a 304!!! Again that did a number on me mentally. As I went to bed last night I was sad that my blood sugars were so crazy but said to myself "It was Christmas, tomorrow things will get back to normal." This morning with a blood sugar of 150 when I awoke I felt good. That would be the last good number until this afternoon, after two hours of basketball my blood sugar was at 226, I did a quick thirty minute workout before another varsity basketball practice. With a bad migraine and a blood sugar of 237 I headed home for a small lunch and a nap to sleep the migraine off. I took a ridiculous six units of insulin for a sandwich, almonds, and a granola bar. I awoke without a migraine but my blood sugar was at 190!! 190, I should have been at 90. This last reading really has me upset, I don't want to be mad at my diabetes but I can't figure out what is going on. I'm working out and eating the right food and I'm still above 150 most of the time.
I hope that this is just a funk, I'm sick of seeing higher than normal numbers. I want to be low!!! I want to be around 80 and wondering why I can't get my blood sugar above 120. More than likely this is just a small bump in the road, I will continue to take more insulin than normal until my blood sugars are back to normal. I may even tweak my basal rates to get things under control. I know it's only December but I want Spring so I can be out running, biking, and having lower blood sugars.
