When I arrived home the madness didn't stop, I had a lot of work to do outside and a blown fuse that needed attention. The fuse would get the better of me after a very intense hour long battle. To calm down a bit I decided to head outside and tackle my lawn project. As I finished mowing the lawn at 630PM I realized that my Dexcom had not beeped in what seemed like days. I took a quick peak and saw that I was at 71, I was very satisfied and decided to call it day and went in for some dinner, when I tested I was at 63. This is where I was faced with a huge problem, how much insulin do I take? I decided to have a glass of apple juice, eat my dinner and take two units of insulin as I ate. Almost two hours later and my blood sugar topped out at 183!!
This afternoon taught me that everyday is different. If I tried to do the same thing tomorrow afternoon my blood sugar might climb up to 300 if I take my insulin while eating dinner. The one thing that I do know is that being physically active is a great thing for my diabetes. It keeps me happy and healthy, as time goes on I may lose a step and get odd old man pains but I will find a way to stay active to help my blood sugars!!
