My fasting blood sugar was 90 this morning. I was happy with that.

W00t! Way to go, Breeze . . . you're getting there!

I was 114 before bedtime
woke up with 113.

I hate starting the day above 100, but c'est la vie . . . it could be worse, right? At least I didn't get slammed by DP (dawn phenomenon).

Came home from work this morning, tested at 121..ate something, went to sleep. Woke up this afternoon at 78. Wonder why I only wake up high when I am home and sleeping at night instead of working and sleeping in the day? Maybe its just messing with me flipping my schedule around from days to nights all the time.

Breeze, that was an excellent fasting number. My target is 90 and I try to stay close to 90 as much as possible.

My fasting this morning was 93, yesterday it was 107. My problem is two hours after breakfast. Sometimes it is too low and other times too high then. I use carb counting and I know my carb ratio is correct, so it should not be this way. I have to watch my CGM until lunch to see how things are going.

I have no doubt that's what happening, Pam . . . constantly having your schedule change has to have an effect. Great FBG today . . . enjoy those when they do come along!

I would like to see my fasting numbers in the high 80's and low 90's, my doctor wants me to try and achieve this as well. You are lucky to have the CGM, I hear that it is a wondeful tool. My numbers and A1C are too good and my insurance will not pay for a CGM, I looked into it.

My numbers and A1c were good too, but my logging clearly showed my occasional lows in the 50s and 60s and my occasional highs in the 170s and 180s. They did not happen very often, but my endo thought that there were enough of them that I would be helped by a CGM. It took me several weeks to really learn how to get good results. The manual does not give all the tricks and advice I found in a Dexcom users group on another site. If you ever get a CGM let me know and I will try to get you off to a better start. I am using the Dexcom CGM.

The state's budget has put some really difficult decisions in the hands of our school board. It is possible that schools will be consolidated and that some of my good friends will lose their jobs. Every day there is a new rumor about what could happen. It is sad and depressing.

I've got a new A1C schdeuled in about two weeks. I am really hoping it reflects the changes I have made.

Well we can all keep our fingers crossed here too! But I have no doubt your efforts will be reflected well. Good luck!
