12.30: Make myself a rather tasty cup of Green Tea with Ginger. Very fresh and just what’s required post lunch number 1.
14.12: Walk over to microwave with Pulled pork in Mexican chipotle sauce and get it cooking. Very nice. Refill water bottle.
14.20-17.00: An afternoon of calls beckons. Always fun!
15.04: Noticed droopy eyes going on fifteen minutes ago. Checked glucose and it shows 3.4, so low kicking in 15 mins earlier. Not got the timing right on my insulin today – changing back to very low carb causing a few play ups. Eat 15g carbs. Might be a bit too much thinks to a diabinge. Perhaps better to go back to post meal surfing than trying to predict the pattern based on pre-bolusing with the low carb diet. Useful lesson though to remind me.
15.14: Dextrosols acting very fast again and on the way up. Libre showing 3.7 and up angle arrow.
15.26: Quick Libre check and it’s 6.1. Knew I’d had too many dextrosols. Wonder where this little ride will stop.
15.27: Head over to Diabetes.co.uk forum to have a quick check out.
15.34: Reply to a few topics on the forum.
15.46-15.51: Libre shows it’s predictive pitfalls, giving a 4.9 at a glance right now, instead of the 6.1 20 mins ago. Maybe I didn’t overdo the dextrosols. Blood test to corroborate the reading, which is good. This kind of error in the Libre is not a good thing though. It can be highly unpredictable in a fast arrow situation.
16.08: Mid afternoon snack – honey roasted cashews, 40g containing 10g carbs. Decide not to bolus given glucose level is 4.4 and falling steadily and there is IOB. Also time for a protein bar, although this probably needs some insulin as previous experience suggests that it will detrimentally affect blood glucose, however I’m training at 5.30, so I don’t really want too much overhang. Best bet it probably to surf as I know the velocity of rise that it can cause but there is IOB.
16.10-16.30: Long technical conversation relating to new product functionality and operational mechanism.
16.34: Glance shows a 5.0 and rising. Decide that if I get to 7 I’ll apply a micro-bolus in line with upcoming exercise.
16.54: Libre check 5.9 and flat arrow. Take no action. Make Creatine pre-workout drink as calls finished a little early. Whilst walking over to the water cooler, notice the cannula sticky pulling. Reminds me that I probably need to change it in the morning.
