Thank you Shanny for your Feedback!! I have had it for at least 5 years, I guess that is not as long as I thought. But regardless, I know what to do, for the most part. I just get tired of being attached to my pump, meds, and BG Meter. I watch other people eat with no regard for the carbs and I am honestly envious. I don't have a standard day as far as Carb Intake, meaning I eat what I want to eat. I do watch my Portion Size and try to balance my diet. I usually try to eat more protein and more Vegatables and less carbs. With the Pump If i count the Carb correctly then there is no problem. But then I have my activity level's and Carb type to account for, etc etc. My last A1C was 7.1 and my doctor was okay with that. I lead an active lifestyle, I play Softball two nights a week and Tournaments roughly every other week. League Nights are the biggest pain, because the Margin of Error is extremely high. During the game I try to keep it 150-200, which is agreed upon with my doc because sometimes if I do a lot of running my sugar can drop a lot and fast. Then after league night, I go home and my sugar typically goes low, then I eat and after two hours (which can be 2-3 in the morning) my sugar drops and I fortunately wake up. It just makes for a horrible day when I don't get enough sleep and my sugar was low. I tend to binge when I wake up with Low sugar and then Wake up with a high sugar at 8-830am. I don't know what I am trying to say, I am just saying it. Hope everyone doesn't mind me rambling. Tournaments are easier because they are usually done before 6pm and I don't have to wake up early Sunday morning. Which means I can get my BG under control 3-4 hours after a sporting activity. I don't have that Luxury on league nights. I was playing 4 league night's a week and I quit one team with some good friends on. I feel guilty for quiting and Feel depressed about that etc. I will be good, I just need to offload this stuff to take the weight and perspective out of it. I should always be greatfull for what I have because I have it better than a Lot of people. Still sometimes, it gets to you.
I have the Minimed 722 pump with a basal of 21 units per day and avg 60 carbs per meal. my a1c is 7.1 and my Good cholestoral is borderline. Everything else is good as far as blood testing goes.
