So tonight I had an interesting experience...
For the past 3 hrs or so, my BG has been low. No matter how much I have consumed, it hasn't seemed to raise it, but it does keep it from going any lower. Now, for me, lows are rare as it is. So I find it incredibly strange, and very worrisome, that I have been low for so long. When I first tested, around midnight, possibly even earlier than that, I was at 3.2 mmol/L. So I had a can of pop, some toast and some cheese. Since then I have tested every 15-20 minutes or so to check if my BG has returned to a more comfortable level, but the highest I have reached is 5.1 mmol/L, which I was not comfortable going to sleep with. I have continued to correct, trying starches to maintain, quick sugars to get it up, but even after 4 full cans of regular pop, two glasses of orange juice, 5.1 is the highest, and I maintained that for about 10 minutes, if not less.
The first questions I know someone would ask: did I take too much insulin today? eat enough carbs? Ironically, today I only took one of my lantus doses of only 18u and I only had one shot of NR which was of 13u to count for quite a substantial dinner, which also consisted of pop. All in all, I would have expected to be HIGH, not low by any measure.
Anyways, so what I was looking for was maybe some answer to what the heck would have caused that. Not a pleasant experience. I certainly don't plan on falling asleep tonight for fear of going even lower while asleep.
(I realise I probably won't hear anything about it for quite some time though since it is quite early in the morning).
Thanks to anyone who has any ideas or info for me =)
