As perplexing as this disease is, most of the time my biggest challenge with managing diabetes boils down to actually doing something. I have a general idea of what I need to do to maintain my ideal blood glucose levels but proper execution is my biggest liability.
And it’s entirely possible that his number isn’t even accurate. Meter accuracy being what it is and all.
But for a moment, it felt like I knew what I was doing.
This is what life with diabetes is supposed to be like. Blood glucose readings aren’t ideal, but I don’t panic. I take my insulin and trust that things will work as they are engineered to.
I have a problem with focusing on the big picture. My diabetes care has received extra attention after my last endocrinologist appointment thanks to a lower High Alarm on my Dexcom Continuous Glucose Meter. If my passing judgement is any indicator this has made a significant improvement on my blood glucose control. Regardless of the high alarm, the typical high blood glucose reading has rarely been around for more than an hour or so thanks to the constant notifications Hal Jordan provides. Now that my High Alarm is lower I’m staying in my target range more consistently. This is a good thing.
