The Diabetes Game
From high to low sometimes can be a worse than a low. For me, I had an outstanding sugar of 19 but after giving myself insulin I went straight down to a 5.2 and that was with eating as well! The sudden drop within an hour and a half made me feel as if I had been struck by a truck.
I was thinking how much diabetes is like a game. You have to stay within range and battle the road blocks like going too low or being too high. You have to master a plan and obstacles such as birthday parties and Easter dinners are bound to make you re-think your game.
I know it's much more serious than a game, it isn't exactly Scrabble or Pictionary but at this point it's all about managing diabetes and however you may find it easiest is how you have to tackle it!
