When taking on a new project, it’s always good to set out some ground rules so everyone knows there they stand. I was rather remiss aged 4 when I took on the role of being my own pancreas without establishing such ground rules. This has got to change.
From now on body, please note the following rules by which we’re going to play going forward:
Insulin reduces blood sugar. Carbohydrate increases blood sugar. This rule should always be adhered to and the ratio between the two should remain the same. No messing around with needing more insulin at certain times of day. No getting in a muddle because the liver suddenly wakes up and decides to get involved. Play fair.
Exercise will reduce blood sugar at the time of, or shortly after said exercise. Let’s stop this silly habit of rising a bit and then having a crashing hypo several hours later. I’m not tolerating that kind of behaviour.
Hormones – you need to get a grip. Adjustments will be made to accommodate your wild ;
