In general, over the day my bs ranges from 5 - 8. I've had a couple of hypos but I think I need to be very accurate with my meal time carb counting and the 2 hypos were when I mis calculated, and then went on long dog walk, so looking back I could see why.( then panics and eat too much and end up high) Also a few 10's and an 11, again not good carb counting, so I can see why I was wrong. I know it's about the patterns.
The only thing I am struggling with, and I am hoping someone can help, is that I like a snack at 9.30am and My stomach is so used to it that I feel very very hungry by lunch if I don't have one, but if I have a snack at 9.30 it is putting my bs up a bit high before lunch. In the 8-9 Then will be 9-10 after 2 hours, dropping down by 4.30/5pm, to 4-5. (Snack is usually half a cerial bar 5 carbs)
Lunch is usually salad, half an avocado, 2 ryvita small portion of fruit and yogurt - carbs 26 - 28 - 3 units humalin
I am injecting the lantus at 7.30am, ( 5 units) so it's 9 hours after that, that bs is lowest, So I thought I could try moving the lantus by 9 hours but that's makes it 1/2 past midnight, and I don't want to get up to do it. So any ideas would be really helpful. Or am I doing something completely wrong, and probably need to change the lantus ? But worried if I up the lantus without changing the time, by 4.30 pm I will be too low. Been on lantus now for 11 days. Probably need to do the basal test, but hunger is such an issue for me. Could I do it and eat eggs?
