Hi @teresa-m,

I’d love to know what your endo says. I was having real problems when I go to work in the office I share with other people. I struggled for months trying to work out why I was flying up in the afternoon. My initial suspect was the filter coffee but on a few occasions I had the same amount of caffeine but experienced no accompanying high. Exercise levels were almost identical to working at home.

Then I clicked that it might be because of a regular stress I was encountering and this was proven a few times when the ‘stress’ wasn’t in the office and I stayed lower.

I’m on an insulin pump so since then I’ve set a temporary basal increase (more background insulin) for a few hours and this seems to have fixed the problem. Obviously there’s so many ;
