It's crazy how much a blood sugar can change in thirty minutes. For most of the winter and some of the spring I was very cautious when it came to taking insulin. In doing so my blood sugar would spike and then I would take to much insulin for the high and then I would be really low hours later. This process would repeat over and over.
As I have become more active I have not been as afraid of low blood sugars. As odd as that sounds, my confidence is a lot higher right now. My diet has changed and I'm back to eating foods that I know how to take insulin for. That combined with a very active lifestyle has helped keep the amount of insulin I take right around 30 units per day. That is my comfort zone when it comes to my diabetes, the more I'm in my comfort zone the better everything else will be.
