It’s been 5 days since my hospital appointment and I think I might be able to keep my Diabetes under some level of control. I’ve gone back to slightly tighter control on how much carbohydrate I eat. I’m watching my calories too as I have a some weight to lose. I am far happier with my blood sugar levels this week than the previous week.

I feel there has been a big improvement. I’m very unhappy with how I was doing before my appointment (on the 3rd March). A few tweaks to my insulin:carbohydrate ratio as well as slightly more monitoring have made the difference I was looking for.
My next goal is to get used to the idea of pre-bolusing for meals when my blood sugar is under 7 or 8. This is something I struggle with at the moment but I believe that being able to give my insulin a 5-10 minute head start on the food will help to reduce my post-meal spikes. I was particularly pleased with how my blood sugar was after dinner on the 4th. Pre-meal blood sugar was 6.4, with further readings of 6.2 at 2 hours post meal and 6.3 at 4 hours post meal. If I could work out how to replicate that I would be ecstatic.
