My bloodsugars have been a little elevated overall, since I returned from the hospital. I think mostly because I'm not moving at my usual speed yet. I just correct as needed, since it doesn't seem to be consistantly high at any one particular time. Plus it's been Christmas, you know, "have a cookie, chocolate, piece of pie...insert sugary delight here" at every turn. I haven't overdone, but given the "lack of exercise/recovery element" afor mentioned, my bloodsugars are unsurprisingly running a bit high.
But I have my pump, so I adjust. I used to worry about irreparable damage being done everytime I was high. Years of worrying. And then I asked my doctor about it once and he said that if I'm getting it down quickly and consistently, there isn't much to worry about. My A1C's bear him out so I worry less about this particular issue now. The goal is to note the high, correct the high and avoid the recriminations. They don't help the situation at hand and sometimes, quite frankly, they actually hurt it. Anger, frustration and annoyance seem to adversly effect my bloodsugars. So why add fuel to the fire. I admit I'm not perfect at the total "no worry" strategy, but I'm getting better at dealing with the highs without the uneccesary extra emotion. A few more bloodtests and lot's less worry, seems like a fair trade off to me. Beats the alternative, in my mind.
