Follow-up endocrinologist appointment

Last month I blogged about how disappointed I was in my A1c results at my quarterly endocrinologist appointment. My follow-up appointment was on Friday, and good news: My A1c dropped from 7.9 to 7.2!

I was surprised but extraordinarily pleased to see it change so much. The Navigator really did help by getting me on the correct dosage almost right away. Being able to see what my blood sugar was doing overnight really helped me to fine tune my Lantus dose.

Interestingly, though, I think my insulin needs have dropped again. I haven't been feeling as hungry or — apparently — eating as much, and as a result I've been losing weight slowly but steadily over the last few months. That usually causes my body to reset my metabolism, which always causes in my insulin needs.

Hopefully I won't need to beg for another sensor in order to figure out the correct Lantus dose this time!
