I am very frustrated as I seem to go over 200 at least once (if not more) a day and I drop low at least once (if not more) a day. I have some weeks though where I can have decent levels but those seem to be few and far between. Does anyone else deal with highs and lows on a daily basis? When I see the diabetes educators they never tell me that other people have this issue. All they say is, "we know, diabetes is hard to control." But they never say that other people are dealing with daily highs and lows. They tell me that my levels are "actually pretty good," But then also tell me that I need to stop the lows and get out of the 200's and only have one or two acceptable levels per day. When they say all these things I feel like I'm the only person in the world that is not capable of getting good control of my diabetes and it frustrates me even though I eat very healthy, work out regularly, and my insulin pump is set exactly to the doctors and educators directions. So, does anyone else deal with daily hight and lows? Or am I really of extremely few that has this problem?
