My endocrinologist highly discouraged trying to get pregnant until at least another A1C round. Then reminded me that the only reason my A1C corrected itself like that was because I ran hypoglycemic for 2 months straight. (With some epic rebounds.)
Since this isn’t a progressive way to maintain control, I met with my CDE again for another pump download. During the analysis of the last two weeks of records (all I really had because it’s a new pump), she sighed after starring at my 6:00 pm lows and said “well, you’re a challenge…”
Well, there you have it. Another CDE is stumped by my glucose control. I added that this is why so many other doctors gave up and just said “Meh, I guess you are okay.” Generally, that had to do with my sugars running higher, but same difference.
That said, no, there isn’t really a rhyme or reason why there are lows plaguing my evenings. Basals have been adjusted, as have carb ratios. I run low regardless of activity or lack thereof. A fatty lunch or a plate of vegetables. The a new problem cropped up – overnight lows.
So I’m stuck with another round of basal tests; this time overnight. And I need to monitor my evenings after another round of adjustments.
I’m really hoping this is all worth it.

Ever thought of working with Gary Scheiner or someone from his team? IntegratedDiabetes.com. I’m always super impressed with those guys…
No, but I’ll look him up. I’ve found a lot of book titles thru blogging that I need to pick up as well.
