Yeah, it's true. I avoid this thread as if it were the plague because I don't have the amazing numbers that y'all have in the mornings so it kind of intimidates me. The dawn phenomenon is very active in my life.

That being said, it's time for me to come out of the closet with my fasting numbers so that others know that not everyone has picture perfect numbers.

So, here it is...

This morning when I woke up, my blood sugar was 141.

A few hours later, after drinking a cup of Bullet Proof coffee, my blood sugar was 108. Go figure.

Haha, Cricket count me as well as someone who doesn't have non-diabetic fasting numbers. Which is why you don't see me in the other thread. People will realize I'm a fraud and run me out with pitchforks! :devil:

Before going on an insulin pump, I was happy to see anything south of 160. The last week, I've been seeing a gradual decline, and am waking up in the 120's and not having to immediately correct to slow the rise. Thanks to not having to correct in the morning my TDD has come down from 120 to 90.

Insulin is magic.

This has been a long time coming for you Daytona. I'm so glad for you that this pump is giving you the control you've wanted for so long.

Well, this is a bit depressing.

I woke up at 243 and was excited because that's better than my usual 300 or higher.

:surprise:

Progress is always good.

I swear I could just post that same response over and over again. Same thing this morning. LOLOL

My CGM said 88 this morning! Haha, I knew that was wrong, calibrated with my meter and came up with 138. That's what I get for sleeping on my "cgm arm". :devil:
