Graph of Diabetes BG Data

So for this most recent adjustment adventure, I made my first basal rate adjustment on Feb 18th… on the left you can see two weeks of what prompted me to start making changes…  to boil it down it’s an avg BG of 225, estimated A1C of 9.5, 71.4 % in high range… not great… so 4 basal adjustments later overall to bring me down, but also a time window adjustment for my 6pm drops (still a mystery)… and I’m now down to an avg BG of 182, estimated A1C of 7.9, and 54.8% of time in the high range… significant improvement. Still a bit to go, I think my dinner time ratio might need to be extended later because I’ve been eating later lately… also desert pop tarts… hey, diabetes is supposed to fit into my life, not the other way, right?! (#pipedreams) but my last adjustment was on March 25th, so I’m going to wait to see how this floats out before making any more changes, can’t be changing more than one variable at a time #science. The sum of this is that I am doing a good job. I get down on myself a lot, but looking at this progress over the last two months I’m proud of the fact that I made these choices myself, I consulted with my doctor, but she just confirmed the decisions I had already had/proposed. Feeling better, now just starting to incorporate exercise and since I’m back in normal ranges I can’t just do whatever because I’m minus most of the buffer now, so back to being aware of using temp basal rate lowering for 3 hours around/including exercise time… ugh… maybe I should wait on that too? haha, yeah no.
