I understand changing your rates. There are times when you do so more often. You’re pregnant, on a new medication, exercise regiment is different. What I don’t get is why all of a sudden I’m high around 2 am, then dropping to about 55 at 6am and then spiking back up into the 200’s by 10am. And that’s without eating or taking any insulin.
Did my hormones all of a sudden go completely out of whack? Is my body rebelling against me even more? What the h-e-double hockey sticks is going on!?
It is beyond frustrating. I’ve been doing everything you can to stay in control, especially overnight. All I want is more than 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep without Roxy yelling at me. First it’s just a peep saying, “I’m high.” Then it moves on to, “Pay Attention to Me!” Then finally, “I SAID LOOK AT ME!”
This happened to me a few months ago and I can’t figure out if this is a similar situation or if some new factor has reared its ugly head. So after three nights of being pissed off I am changing my basal rates Again and hopefully I’ll have some success.
I imagine a Dexcom is kind of like having a baby. But when a real baby wails you can’t throw it across the room, hide it under your pillow, or ignore until you’re finally back in range.
