I woke up low yesterday morning.
Which, ordinarily, is no big deal. It happens. I’ve been pretty aggressive with my pre-dawn basal rates, actually trying to program a Super Bolus into my regular basal pattern (jack up my basal rate really high one hour, then cut it down to almost zero for the next) so I wouldn’t need to play those games every day at breakfast. That hasn’t been working too well, but that’s not why I woke up low.
This is why I woke up low.
Apparently, for reasons I can’t remember, I decided to give myself a shit-ton worth of insulin at 3:25 in the morning. Without entering a BG. Without entering carbs. Just straight, unjustifiable Novolog.
