Day 1 and nothing very good to report YET.
Injected at 6pm yesterday and about 1/2 hour later started to feel a bit light headed and this stayed with me all evening, woke up this morning with a headache and still have it and also a bit light headed. Possible side effects from the insulin, according to them, so I will have to wait and see what happens hopefully it will all settle down soon.
So my usual morning BG has been in the range of 12 to 14mm and after lunch and before my afternoon cuppa it is usually about 16mm before my evening meal it is around 14/15mm and about an hour and a half after meal around 18mm and about 11pm when I go to bed around 14/17mm.
A strange thing I noticed and tested last week was that if I had a cup of tea or coffee with just a small splash of semi skimmed milk an hour later my BG had gone up by 3.0mm. But if I drank it black it didnt rise at all.
So yesterday afternoon I was running a bit high for no reason that I can work out but here are my figures for yesterday PM all in mmol
15.00 - before cuppa - 20.6
18.00 - before injection and meal - 22.3
19.20 - after meal - 25.4
19.59 - 24.1
20.59 - 23.4
22.22 - 22.0
23.21 - bed time - 18.6
So coming down a bit quicker than previously but not by very much.
Had a very good nights sleep until I woke up at 5.55 this morning feeling very hot and sweating profusely probably liver dump or dawn thingy. So I got out of bed and walked around in the bathroom until I cooled down then went back to bed. Woke up 2 hours later, well it is Saturday and swore at myself for not taking my BG at 5.55. Got washed etc and took my BG it was 11.3 took it again 20 min later and it was 12.9 so I had a cuppa. Took another reading at 11.15 I was 14.8 had another cuppa before lunch at 12.48 I was at 13.2 and so it goes on.
So some evidence it is working also that I need to change dose to maybe twice a day and lower the evening one. However I dont want to upset my DSN so need to talk to her first and it is only the evidence of the first day so things might change over the next few days and I will talk to her on Monday.
I wish this headache would go.
