A 6.7 which is higher than I like but probably what I deserve! This lockdown is not conducive to carb control for me I’m afraid. I reckon my Hba1c of 38 will be up this year.

Frustrating day yesterday. Took the risk and went into the hospital haematology unit for an urgent blood test 3 weeks ago. Rang yesterday to be told they’d forgotten to include it on the FBC! :mad:
Now I have to risk another surgery visit to repeat it. I had a bit of a meltdown at this gross incompetence I’m afraid!

I will follow your suggestions. I normally take 15 units of Toujeo in the evening but tonight I will take 8 units. I will follow this up tomorrow morning with 8 more units and on Saturday morning will revert to 15 units. Thank you.

@Michael12421 That sounds like a good plan whilst still erring on the side of caution. Really hope it helps, but I know things might be a bit erratic for a few days due to swapping, so do be prepared for that.
To be fair, things can't be much worse than the problems you have been facing recently and we will all be a lot happier if the change solves it. I know you are a bit cavalier about the knocks and bangs you have suffered, but any one of those incidents could have proved fatal, so I am really relieved that you are prepared to try this. I know it is out of your comfort zone so I really hope it pays off.
One of the things I have found most beneficial with managing my diabetes is having the confidence to experiment. Testing more frequently has given me that confidence. Do you have plenty of test strips?

Good morning given the change that I have made I am 14.2 this morning. In an hour I will inject the second half of Toujeo, maybe a little more - say 9 units. I have plenty of test strips. Apart from taking my dogs out I have little else to do that is physical. I was supposed to climb a few ladders today to fix back the chandeliers I had taken down for cleaning but I think that I will give it a miss.

02:43 BS 7.1 a smidge bit over 7 but, still ok. :) Had breakfast already & reduced the dose to 16 units of Novorapid & after 04:51 BS 7.5. Well pleased with that!:D Couldn’t get back to sleep after midnight Levemir: a slight bit of DP there; still don’t need quite so much sleep, not yet anyway!:rolleyes:

Just waited until now, a decent ish time when others are awake to post this!;) Was catching up reading new posts on the forum while waiting!:rolleyes:

A very early Good Morning to you all & have a Wonderful Day!;)

PS:- I just remembered my prescription I ordered online late on Friday night, after discharge from A&E forgetting the next day was Saturday, that’s been sitting at the chemist since Monday? Will have to phone my local chemist later, when they’re open, to deliver it to me. Thank goodness that I can get that, now that the initial panic/rush at the start of lockdown has abated a bit & the chemist can keep up with delivering again, when they were swamped beyond their capacity!:eek::rolleyes::)

I wonder if GP practice gave me anything to test ketones at home, like I asked, but, I’m not panicking about them anymore as my BS levels have come down!:) If I get something I’ll keep them for later if I need to use them: if I don’t get anything; I’m not too concerned!:rolleyes:

3.8 this morning from a gentle decline overnight. No wonder I couldn’t get back to sleep.

Rain!!! The first cloudy day in absolutely ages. I shall still need to water the pots as it will not be enough for them. Could this be the first evening this month when we eat inside?

Have a good day.

Oh dear! Just now, 06:33 BS 4.1 & had a jelly baby: munching; will have oatcake/s too after JB munched! Need to reduce Levemir doses now too: midnight’s 20 units is obviously too much; will drastically reduce midday’s 36 units to be on the safe side. Will have 18 units at midnight & increase a wee bit at midday 38 units & see how that goes? Of course, plans can go out the window: meter watching today! :eek:

Morning all, 5.9 here. A band of rain seems to have crossed the country overnight without dropping a single splash on our garden! According to our neighbour's weather station we’ve had less than 2mm this month, and that was 3 weeks ago.

7.1 this morning and definitely time to break out the summer weight duvet. And the bedroom fan. And maybe look into buying aircon. Or a huge ice block. Or employ a gentleman to stand by my bed and gently fan me as I sleep.

Morning

6.0 for me today after digestive biscuits for a 6.2 last night, strange thing is my Libre was reading well lower yesterday (scan 3.8 and steady, prick 6.2, scan 4.9, prick 8.2) which I wasn't bothered about as it's due to be changed after a nice long hot shower this morning anyway but this morning it was 5.3 and a prick 6 so it seems to have found some life left in it yet! :confused:

Well it was absolutely chucking it down when I got up at 6 but seems to have calmed for now, the rain that is, the wind is still pretty wild, still far too hot though, cant even get cream on my hands at nights or that as it wont soak in as my hands are drenched with sweat even after just drying them! Doesn't help that my mum put the heating on in the afternoon yesterday and then still has something against opening a window, not sure if there's something wrong with me or her though as while I'm sweating like god knows what she was telling me she was just fine!

Anyways stay safe and have a nice day
xx

Morning all. Another good day eating wise yesterday, another disappointing reading of 7.8 this morning. Am back to normal weight again. So hot here though overcast - need a jolly good storm really but my dog would not feel the same. Take care everyone x

Good morning all my lockdown lovelies. In a good mood today, or should I say better as I’m always in a good mood! A 6.9, but hey, that’ll be the fish and chips. From a shop. At the seaside. Yeah, we got in the car and drove the 23 miles to the coast. Top Rebs or what? It was great, nice and quiet, this is a Victorian seaside town, it’s never busy, there’s nowt there, apart from a chippy, amusements that aren’t open and caravan parks, which also aren’t open. Lovely evening but no sunset unfortunately, but a very calm and serene sea. The literal calm before the storm. Gonna be a tad windy today, shouldn’t have had those mushy peas. Sorry! ;) Have a good day and batten down the hatches.

Good morning everyone. 10.5 after a flipping horrible 3.2 in the early hours - took me 65 carbs to get out of hypo land. Diabetes really hates me at the home but at least I had a nice day yesterday :) currently wrapped up in blanked because gastroparesis tummy hates the impact of all those carbs.

Just got my prescription delivered & I did get a box of 50 urine test strips for ketones. I’ll save those for another time when ill. It was a bit disconcerting to see the chemist deliery person no wearing protection gear at all when they wore aprons, masks & gloves! :rolleyes:

Does anyone have an idea at what ketone levels would be in the blood before it would spill over into urine: give me a rough idea of how much is in the blood if ketones show up in my urine?
