The Endo Appointment

So I had my endo appointment yesterday.

All the logging paid off…she was a happy endo. 🙂  She wants me to try to fix some afternoon lows (10 years ago if you’d have told me my endo would be telling me to fix lows, I’d have said you were mad), but she was otherwise quite pleased with what she saw.  A1C was 6.7, thyroid was good, kidneys were good, BP was good, I felt her little foot-poking tool just fine…in other words, no major issues.

Also, she gave me the okay to get pregnant again…. 


This means that all of my doctors who need to sign off on another pregnancy  have done so….


It also means that this decision is now entirely up to us – we know the risks and we know the rewards.  It’s just the two of us and our one Big Decision.

Which is why this is the point where I quit blogging about it…at least for now.

    Have you basal tested lunch?

    I don’t know your profile, but I found my DP breakfast dose was carrying over into my early afternoons:
    BF bolus 7:30 @ 2.5:10
    Lunch bolus @ 1:10

    Boluses last for 6.5 hours. During the second half of my BF bolus — 10:30 to 1:30 — I have my morning insulin working doubly hard. People generally don’t worry about tailing boluses, but with such a swing, it mattered enough to often send me low. I countered it by lowering my 9am and 10am basals slightly, effectively making my breakfast a super-bolus. Capiche?


    • I haven’t…. I find basal tests don’t help me much unless they’re at night. My basal needs are completely different with boluses than without, so basal testing doesn’t really tell me anything about what I need on a normal day. I don’t know if that makes sense – my profile is just totally bizarre.

      I kind of doubt that my breakfast insulin is having much impact on my afternoons since I’m taking tiny breakfast boluses b/c of low carb / low GI breakfasts. I’ll keep an eye out for an impact like that, though….thanks!

      I’m not having really bad lows – or really often. They just need to bump up by about 1 mmol/l and I’ll be happy. 🙂

      Thanks for the input!


  4. Congrats!

  7. Wow! That’s great news – and a testament to how much you’ve worked, too.

    I keep meaning to phone you and have a little chat… but life is so busy! Really. We NEED to have a phone date soon.

    Congrats on the hard work Beth. Your perseverance is always inspiring!!


  9. Wow, that’s wonderful news! I have my doc appointment on Wednesday. I’ve been eating almost no carbs at all though lately, so I may need to up the meds in order to get more complex carbs into me.
