I’ve pretty much always known it to be true, but now I have the graphs to back me up. I can wake up with an amazing fasting number in the morning but my “getting ready” routine sends the number soaring. I have tried different methods to combat the rise, but I am not really satisfied with any of the results and so I’m looking for something new.
I am disconnected from my insulin pump for probably about 15-20 minutes as I shower and get dressed. It’s not that long, but it is also at the time of day that my basal rate is the highest. When I sleep in (read: weekends), my numbers stay level during the same time so I know it is not my basal rates; it’s my routine.
So what do you guys do for the post shower rise?
And yes, this picture was taken in the same location as the picture yesterday. So Crystal got it right. The sensor was resting on a book, which was resting… on the toilet. What can I say?! The lighting is good in that room! 🙂
