The other challenge that I have been having is out of range blood sugars in the morning when I wake up. For the first few days I was out of range and would have a difficult time getting back into range as the day began. The interesting part is the days that I'm on the bike or running my blood sugar doesn't move while I'm sleeping. Now is this because of working out or is it because my body has adjusted to the new insulin? I have no idea but I have four units of NPH at my disposal if the overnight out of range blood sugars return. That brings me to the amazing doctors and nurses that I have. Being able to text, call or email any one of them at anytime of day is amazing. Obviously without them I wouldn't be the athlete or person that I am today. This morning I sent them my Dexcom report and they put a plan in to action to fix my out of range morning blood sugars. As a patient that means the world to me. That allows the people that love me to rest easy at night.
In thirty minutes I have a nice bike ride planned. This will be the second bike test for injections. Just like the race on Sunday I'm in range and relaxed. It is still early in the injection test but so far things are going very well.
