Finally

I am so grateful that I have finally been able to bring my blood glucose number down to a reasonable, acceptable range. I've been working with my doctor's nurse since the 29 of April to get these numbers. Every week she has put up with me coming in with my numbers and actually taken the time to see me for a few and go over my numbers and adjust my insulin. She has been my pep team, for sure. In the process of getting diabetes whipped into shape, there is no substitute for a great medical team.

Along with the insulin, I've been getting more exercise. Most days I have been walking for 45 minutes at least one time and some times, two times a day. Recently, my husband and I have been riding bikes together (He got a new Jamis Commuter 3). I am so out of shape and it is difficult for me at times, but today we rode over 4 miles. I was so proud.

The chart below shows my fasting blood sugar, my 2 p.m. (2 hours after lunch) and my bedtime number. My Tuesday and Saturday 2 p.m. numbers are higher than I want them but far below what they were when I started in April, which was 315.
