Question Sudden rise in FBG

My normal FBG is between 4.8 - 5.8 ever since I started on Lantus 5 months ago. Suddenly on Tuesday it was 6.3, then 6.3 again the next day then 6.5 and now today it is 7.5. Expiry date on insulin is 2014 but it has been in my fridge for 5 months. I changed pens and took one from a new box in my fridge but no go. Because of a higher FBG naturally I am higher all day than I would like but my 1 and 2 hour rises are minimal and the same rise as normal.

Nothing has changed. Excercise, same. LCHF WOE, same. Thought I may be about to get sick but no. No tooth ache nor bleeding gums.

Have put up my insulin by 1 unit from 12 to 13 this morning so will see what transpires.

The only different thing I can see is a little bit of stress over the last few days. Could my liver be dumping more glucose in some sort of fight or flight response?

Could be. As discussed on another ongoing thread could be a number of reasons. Stress definitely on top of my list.

Something just occurred to me, a memory....years ago when my kids were small, and I seemed to catch everything they brought home, my doctor told me to notice when I woke early, or noticed anything jittery in the mornings so I could double up the antihistamine for a few days and add vit C to try to avoid catching whatever it was. He claimed if we tuned into feelings such as those, we could avoid many illnesses. It works that way for me. I guess it is a stress issue.

Welcome to the world of diabetes. The least little thing like not sleeping well or sleeping in too long can play havoc with your bgs. I even find when the barometer drops due to a storm coming my bg control goes out the window.
