My treat at breakfast this morning was half of a banana along with my usual two sausage patties. I normally have applesauce or yogurt but – today I was going to have a banana, well half of one. I even weighed it on the scale. It said 18 carbs. I thought that was too many but I went with it.
I sliced it up into small pieces and enjoyed every small bite.
By 10am ole dexcom was going nuts and saying I was over 200. Well, I knew it was wrong. How could I be 200 after eating just half of a banana? AND bolusing for it?!
I really hate using a test strip just to prove to dexcom that I’m right and it’s wrong but I did test. And rats, dexcom was right! Ping didn’t suggest a correction so, I didn’t correct.
By 11:15, I was 88.
This is ridiculous.
But that’s what’s been going on the last few days. After almost every meal I’m flying higher than a kite – yes, it’s before two hours but I don’t usually do that. I’m at the end of my bottle of insulin and this is the one that went traveling with us in October.
Guess I will switch to a new bottle that hasn’t been up and down the east coast in a cooler/hotel fridges/friends’ fridges.
