This blog has some serious work to be done to it. Must've entered the html code(links) wrong, the webpage colors are ugly.. Likely I'll be switching templates alot until I get it just right.
Started the Lifescan study (Ultrasmart meter) last night. I've used an US meter before, but didn't care for it. You've got to enter carbs/blood sugar/ miscellanious; graph all of that on the research paper log, enter all of it AGAIN in your pump, and enter the bolus total on the paper log/US meter. At least its only for two weeks.
Despite last nights correction(1.6 units- 170), my blood sugar was 263 this morning. I think my overnight basals need overhauling. Had granola, bolused a 1/10 with 3 units Symlin..and my meter graced me with a 113 at lunch. I don't use Symlin all the time, but its very effective in keeping those post-meal blood sugars down!
Family came over today for my two year old nephew's birthday party. My sister-in-law, one of the best cake makers this side of the Mississippi, made this cute cake:He throughly enjoyed it..as did the rest of us.. Lunch was a DKA'ish carb smorgasbord of iced tea(1/3 Splenda, 2/3 sugar), rolls w/apple butter, salad, carrot-jello salad, rice with beans/sausage gravy, and the cake, ice cream. Over 200 carbs, easily. I'll be checking every hour to see if I guessed right!
