Thank you everyone for your advice. I currently log everything that I eat in my sensor Libre app. I also use the My GI app to get as accurate a measure I can on how many carbs I eat.
When I was discharged from the hospital, the doctor I saw there advised I start a keto diet - so I did for about two weeks. I was eating probably ~5-10g carbs per meal. My blood sugars were kept in line for the most part. After seeing my endo (who regrettably wasn’t as helpful as I wanted), he advised that keto is not the correct diet for me, and says I should aim for ~25-35g carbs per meal. So carb light, but still incorporating carbs. Exciting news I thought - I really do enjoy carbs! However, when I started to introduce more carbs in to the equation is when my sugars started to wiggle more. I currently use a 1:36 (round up to 4) carb to insulin ratio at meal time. What I am seeing right now is more peaks and dips instead of steady. I am seeing higher peaks after meals and lower dips in between meals.
To Dorie - Thank you for the suggestion for the app, I will look in to it. I currently log my meals on the Libre sensor app and use the My GI app to get carb information.
To Joe - Would you happen to know of any links for the basic calculations? I can start eating a mixed carb snack before bed, I don’t typically snack that late but will give it a go to see if it effects my morning blood sugar.
To Sally Ann - I have an appointment with a dietician this upcoming week, which will be a big help I’m sure! I also plan to give the diabetes clinic a call to ask some questions. My experience with the professionals as of now however, has felt rushed and dismissive. My brother fears that because the doctors and staff were aware of my situation, having a sibling with T1D for over 20 years, made them dismiss my situation - like I already knew it all. I feel like he was right, as when I was speaking with the doctor and nurses who administered my insulin, they kept saying for me to lean on my brother for support.
To Dennis, I take long acting Basaglar. I am not very active late at night when I take the long-acting. This is usually 1-2 hours before bed. Also, as for being in the “honeymoon” phase, I don’t know if I am or not to be honest. My endo, who seemed a bit dismissive and rushed with me, suggested it, but didn’t clarify. He said something to the tune of my pancreas “is probably working at 15%, but will inevitably fail entirely”. So I took that as a confirmation, but to be fair, I don’t really know. I suppose there are tests that would be done to determine that? I have a followup appointment in July.
