I am still new to T1D (about two months). I am working on Carb/insulin ratio and it has been a struggle. My BG can be at 120 -130 before mean but it can spike to over 200 after mean with 1-2 hours. I am unable to exercise because sometimes even a short slow walk can causing a straight arrow down drop on my Dexcom. However, sometimes I walk for 15 minutes but the BG stays high. I just don’t understand why.
I want to reach a “Controlled” status as soon as possible. What is considered “Controlled”? Does it mean your BG can be maintained in-between medication for several hours without dropping? Does it mean A1C is under 7? Or does it mean if you can carb/insulin correctly, the before meal BG and after meal BG stays pretty close?
Any help or sharing of your experience would be appreciated.
