@jasmin…I know what you’re going through because after 45 yrs, this is something I still go through at times. It’s like I get into these weird ruts where no matter what I do, I run high without a clear cut reason.
For me, it can be emotional stress, underlying virus, infection, something I ate, even two weeks before my period. When I get into a rut, I try to think of any-thing that might be causing it. Then for about a week I write down my numbers, things I ate, insulin dosage, activities, how I feel mentally and physically. I try to see a pattern. Usually I can pinpoint what’s going on, but if not, I email my notes to my md and get his opinion. Sometimes after about a week, I fall back into my usual numbers without a reason. Being a student with high bg’s is really hard. You’re probably tired, lethargic, and just feel off. I’ve always been active, but when I started college and dating, I never had enough time and stopped exercising. I don’t know your time constraints, but I’m sure not feeling well and everything going on in your life, exercise is the last thing you want to do. But it can make a difference and help with stress and bg control.(I can hear you groaning😒) For me just walking to class and not driving, taking the stairs, you see where I’m going? I REALLY had to push myself because I physically did not feel like it. Afterwards I was glad I pushed because it helped. The next day I had to reminded myself how good I felt after, and used that to push. Do what you like to do. The benefit, you’re revving up your metabolism for hours afterwards. I run high after a meal. I’ll walk around if I’m out or work on the never ending chores around my home. That’s just an example of how I try to handle the “ruts.” The reason I think this happens, our bodies are constantly changing from one minute to the next. One day I have a good numbers day, the next I’ll do everything I’d been doing and I still run high. Give journaling a try for a wk to establish a pattern. See if you’re doing something different you might not even be aware of.
I’d like to hear how you’re doing and how you’re getting on:+1:
