What to do!
Throughout the night my blood sugar was nicely trundling along between 5 and 6 mmol/L.
At 5am I get up, inject 2 units of rapid insulin to take care of my morning decaf with sugar and milk.
1 unit equals 20gm of carbs.
At 6.30 I have breakfast. Porridge, oats, honey, raisins with more decaf, sugar and milk. Carbs 90gm, protein 16gm, fat 4gm. No further insulin.
At 7.30 I climb on my bicycle for a 35km ride. At 12km I check da suga: bloody hell!
I keep my nerve.
At 28km I check again: bloody hell! I now have to eat, otherwise I won’t get home.
Munch a piece of dry toast on the banks of Freshwater Creek.
Arriving home: 5.6 mmol/L.
Should I have injected the 2 units with my wake up coffee?
The peak would have been even higher.
But, there is no point in eating extra food to keep up with the insulin.
What do you say?
