A Perfect Day(s) of Diabetes

Posted on

I’m not perfect.  I’m not even close to perfect.  I haven’t been able to get my A1C below seven in any of my 19 years with Type 1 Diabetes. But something happened last week that was probably as close to perfection as I could ever dream.  I had two great diabetes days in a row!

Perfect Day 2

I wish I knew what I did to get two great days in a row.  This was the day after my Day of Diabetes, which was also a good day from noon on leading into these two great days.  I have no idea why I was so good though.  I hadn’t changed my workout routine or my eating habits.  I did start to pre-bolus before meals but I have continued to do that since these two great days and haven’t been as good since.

These are more typical days of my dealings with T1D:

Maybe you can tell why I hate my alert so much-it goes off a lot!  I wish T1D made more sense.  I wish I could explain why I was so great for two straight days or why I can’t get days to look that good normally.  I just need to keep trying and hopefully I will have more of the better days and less of these 200-300 days.

    • Yeah so frustrating, especially when nothing has really changed. Oh well, the good days were nice while they lasted 🙂

  1. Yay! Wow – those days look amazing! You can do it, Kelley! Diabetes is so hard to figure out, but you are definitely on the right track. Doing all of those fastings is the first step.

    • Thanks 🙂 Yeah I have noticed a huge change since I did the basal testing, mainly because I bolus correctly for food now that I’m not afraid I’ll get low from my basal rates being too high.

  2. Great job on those two days! Sometimes it comes down to the fact that you’re super-aware on those days like #dayofdiabetes and it carries over a bit. Then again, sometimes there’s no explaining the crazy days. Wish we could explain it…
