Are you allowed chocolate?

If only I had a jar for when people ask if I’m allowed to eat chocolate. I would be rich!

I just thought I would share with you my disastrous blood sugars on Christmas Day. My sugars do not agree with any food unless I have put my insulin in 20 minutes before eating. As you can see, this did not happen on Christmas day and as a result I battled all day with my sugars and then ended on a hypo.

However, surprisingly I managed to stay in the Christmas spirit and didn’t let it ruin my dinner which we paid a fortune for.

I have a lot of trouble with after food spikes and then dips so if anyone has any tips, I would be extremely grateful! My doctor has changed my insulin, (which I will be starting soon), to a faster acting insulin which will hopefully help.

2020 is going to be the year of getting myself in target (most of the time). I am very aware that even the smallest of changes can stop this so I try not to get down when I have bad days but my New Years resolution is to stop putting diabetes at the bottom of my list!

  1. Yes, my Christmas day was similar to yours, only not quite so extreme. I managed to keep my high down to the 17’s. And the muggles simply cannot understand, bless ’em.
