Reactive Diabetes

First of all, hi there to all of you in blogland. I haven't posted in a while, just been lazily commenting here and there. But what better to spark a post than a visit to the Endoc, right?

So my A1c was 6.3 today, exactly the same as what it was back in June. Weight down a little, cholesterol good. The doc rated it an "A". But I know it could be better, and that my standard deviation is...well...highly deviant and not very standard. For a very long time (a few years) I have been pretty happy to not log (in spite of Kevin sending me his awesome spreadsheet), not change pump settings, and just correct with each new meter reading. I've got the whole exercise and BG thing working well enough to make it through most workouts, and I eat pretty much what I want (within portion controlled reason of course). I test frequently, so I think that is why the A1C looks decent. I actually found myself hoping that my A1C might come back higher to spur me into proactive mode.

So how about you OCers? Are you currently proactive or reactive with your basal rates and bolus/correction ratios and why?

I'm in a serious period of "reactive" in regards to my whole diabetes management. It stinks.

I'm not sure what has pulled me out of my motivational routine, but I'll get back to it soon.

Hi Carol,
It's nice to see you're posting again.

I'm more reactive with my BGs. I always have been - it's a nasty habit I need to correct. But I've always feared hypos more than highs. I think that has something to do with it.

BTW, congrats on such a good A1C! That's a great number!

7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.
