@Lanny I'm not so sure there is a comparison chart as such available for that but you could try googling it, I do know however ketones in urine show what they were like around 4 hours previously as opposed to blood being an on the spot current reading xx

Sorry @Lanny not sure what the exact levels are.

I have on my sick day rules if ketones are > 1.5 ( +/ ++) start to add in extra insulin every 4 hours
If ketones are > 3.0 (+++/ ++++) start to add in extra insulin overly 2 hours.

So I am guessing that at 1.5 things start to cause issues.

@Michael12421.... How have things been through the day today? Don't worry too much about being a bit high for a few days and just use your quick acting to carefully adjust it with conservative corrections as needed but it will take a few days for your basal levels to settle down with Toujeo being such a long acting insulin. Hope all is well.X

Hmm that's odd as on the stuff I was given when diagnosed anything up to 0.6 blood test was regarded as normal but anything over should be treated xx

Thanks @Kaylz & @SB2015 , very useful so, it’s four hours later than blood & if it shows up in urine test it again 4 hours later. Then, add in insulin every 4 hours corresponding to 3rd colour block, 1.5, & every 2 hours corresponding to the 4th colour block, 4. It doesn’t seem as accurate as I thought but, better than nothing! :rolleyes: Up briefly for midnight Levemir 18 units.;)

04:05 BS 8.7 after reduction in midnight Levemir, I’m ok with that! :) Yesterday’s readings before lunch BS 6.8 but, after was a bit high BS 11.7 so, midday Levemir was a bit too little at 36 units but, after that hypo after breakfast yesterday: better that than risk going low the rest of the day; I’ll pop it up a bit to 38 units today.:rolleyes: Before dinner was a bit high too BS 8.7 so, added +2 to Novorapid, 14 units instead of 12 & after was 8.9: not too bad!:rolleyes:

So, hopefully today from midnight Levemir reduced a bit, 18 units, & midday Levemir at 38 units, also reduced a bit from 40, my BS will be more settled & I won’t worry if it’s a wee bit higher: hopefully settle down to lower readings tomorrow. AB’s are finished: took last one last night; back to taking my regular inhalers again & they are actually having an impact now when they didn’t seem to before!:)

Boy!:eek: It was blowing a gale out there all day yesterday so, we’ve taken off the brunt of it a bit for you lot in GB when you get it next: today, maybe; the wind has gone here now!:rolleyes:

An early Good Morning to you all & batten down the hatches!;):rolleyes::eek:

Morning all from an overcast and very windy Brighton, will keep the hordes away anyway. Tested yesterday 2 hours after food and lo and behold a lovely 5, very pleased to see a 5 so thought I would make the effort and test this morning before I lifted my head from my pillow, still 6.5 which is better but not as low as I was hoping - drat it.
Spent a frustrating day yesterday trying to get hold of my consultants secretary (the urology one from UCLH), totally impossible, I have emailed the hospitals care team and the urology team, tried ringing main switchboard and Westmoreland Street direct - nothing. They want me to go up there for an MRI and TRUS (didn’t even know they did them on women, it says it’s to do with a prostate). I definitely don’t want to have to go to London just for a scan, why can’t I have it down here. The MDT meeting hasn’t even taken place yet, aaargh somebody give me an answer.
Anyway, whinge over, stay calm and carry on!!
Have a good day one and all, don’t get blown away, thanks for the heads up @Lanny xx

Head off the pillow and it’s an 8.1 this morning. Give it about an hour and I’ll be comfortably in the 7’s

Seeing all the reports of clouds and winds etc so I’m pleased to report clear blue sky and precisely zero breeze here this morning. I’ve still popped out onto the balcony and given all the pots their morning watering - seems to be about 20lt of water twice a day - and am going to research bottle fed drip irrigation solutions to save me ending up having to water three our more times a day as summer heats up.
I’ve also realised I would have been better off getting much larger pots but que sera sera.

Morning

@Lanny wasn't just you that had the gales yesterday, Scotland did too from before I got up at 6am, all through the day and still going now, hasn't made it any cooler though :(

5.8 for me today after 2 digestive biscuits at bedtime, no idea what happened overnight though as when I was woken by the upstairs neighbours just after 1am I found my 15 hour old sensor lying in bed next to me (crying face) I will put a new one on shortly and cover it straight away as cant have any more issues and I'll have to call it in but wont be until Tuesday now with the bank holiday

Anyway stay safe my lovelies
xx

Morning all and 7.2 for me. Looks like I was a half unit out on my guestimate for yesterday's tea. Nice flatfish though.

Wind still gusting here. I hope the queue at the pharmacy isn't too long this morning.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning all, 5.3 here, so close!
Windy here too, yesterday @Lanny, tree down across the road to the next town.
It’s forecast to rain this morning, we are desperate for it for the veg garden, but did it have to choose the one hour of the week when I'm going riding?

Do a happy dance @Baz. That’s brilliant! :p :):p

Morning all. It was REALLY windy here too @Lanny. Hubby was cementing the patio all day and has a lovely reddish-purple wind/sunburn stripe across his builders’ bum. Just gorgeous!

4.0 for me.:)
