Recent Visit

             I went back to my Dr.'s appointment today and it was pretty much in and out. They were pleased I have been seizure free two months and counting. I do still have some lows but I know some of that is related to having hypoglycemia unawareness. I tend to stay on the lower side of things most of the time I do not usually go above 200 normally which is good. I having went to a CDE and dietician recently to address my recent issues because I feel like that my PA does not have time to go over all of my concerns. I know she has made some slight basal changes back to what I had them set to previously but the PA disagreed with the basal changes. I am glad that I was making the correct basal changes. I know the CDE and I talked about the possible need to eat several small meals a day instead of larger meals to create less issues with blood sugars but I will know more after my next visit which is coming up soon.

             It feels good to know that my overall adjustments for my pump settings have worked well. Every fall my basal night insulin increases dramatically. I use more insulin at night then during the day. The joys of dealing with the dawn phenomenon. I have been able to have no night lows and wake up around 130 most morning which is what I am aiming for. I am pleased that I only have one more 6 week appointment and then back to my normal 3 month appointments again. It feels so nice to be seizure free and a whole lot more relaxed in general.


  1. Thanks Scott. It feels great to be avoiding the seizures right now.
