Back to Basics.
Yesterday, after two weeks of clingy lows and then some unreasonable high blood sugars, I took a look at my meter average and saw a climb in numbers that I was not happy with. Could it really be the switch from Humalog to Novolog two and a half weeks ago? Does the difference actually matter? Some say yes, some say no, and some teeter in the space between.
I'm not sure if I'm a definitive "yes" or "no" yet, but I do know that I have no room for stubborn 280 mg/dL's or nights where I'm low three times over. Could be coincidence, could be my personal response to the insulin change, but either way, I could feel my hard work eeking away with every meter beep. I'm going back to basics (thankfully, my Humalog supply wasn't exhausted) and contacting my mail order pharmacy today to see if there's any chance they'll take back the three month's worth of accidental Novolog and swap it out for the insulin I'm familiar with.
I don't mind spending time figuring things out and making adjustments, but sometimes, it's not worth it to me. Especially when my A1C is holding steady at a range that I'm happy to hang on to. I hope the pharmacy agrees.
