It's been a major effort, but my TDD is slowly going down. If you've been reading for a while, you'll know I have had some major stress in my life, plus I injured my knee slowing down my workouts. My TDD got back up to over 60 units a day, 80 a few times, even doing Symlin.
Well, I've been making a effort to follow my iShape workouts every day and I've done very well with that. At first, the workouts were just smoothing out my blood sugars, but finally I started having to eat after working out to avoid a lot. In fact, I'm still having to do that, even though I lower my basal to 50% for exercise.
I have also been making better choices. Choosing lower carb snacks when I absolutely positively have to eat. My favorite meal is one of the packaged Ceasar salad, add a bit more salad dressing and either chicken or tuna. The bulk helps the most.
Anyway, I'm celebrating as I've gotten my average TDD to 45 units a day, my bolus ratios and correction ratios are also decreasing -- yeah, it all works that way. I think I've stopped gaining weight and I'm hoping to start losing again.
