My bg’s have been pretty good lately. Especially my fasting bg’s. I have been waking up under 120 every day for a good long while.
Go overnight basal rates! WOO HOO
And also maximum respect to my correction bolus amount. Good job!
My post prandial bg’s are not so great but the more time I leave between bolus to grubbing the better. It makes for less corrections which is always nice.
So why is it that EVERY TIME I am scheduled to have my A1C and other lab work done, EVERY TIME, I have my highest blood sugars in months the day before.
My diet doesn’t change so that’s not it. I just bolus incorrectly, forget to bolus all together, have a tubing issue with my pump, or in this case totally miscalculate my carb intake.
That was the number I had last night before I started my fasting for the draw this morning.
I woke at 119.
I know an A1C reflects your bg average of three months so it sucks that my average just got destroyed but some lame once in a great while screw up.
The only solution I can come up with is spontaneous blood tests. Maybe I can trick myself into not jinxing my quarterly draws.
Does this happen to you? I feel like an idiot because I honestly do this EVERY TIME!
