Spring Forward with a Better Blood Sugar

Today I woke up in a daze. The clocks were all different; I was lightheaded and everything around me felt so strange. I just knew my blood sugar was low. I quickly grabbed a juice box, took a selfie and proceeded to check my blood sugar level.


Yes, that is definitely a low blood sugar kind of daze. My hubby claims that my pupils get really small with low blood sugars, so I’m testing out his theory. 


I was surprised at how low my blood sugar was. How was I functioning? Somehow my sensor for dexcom must have gone bad. There are no readings for the last 2 hours. It didn’t alert me. It didn’t wake me up. It didn’t prevent my extremely low blood sugar from happening. At first I thought it could have been from sleeping on the sensor. Now that I’ve been awake and it still not showing a reading, I know it needs to be changed.

Both my omnipod and Dexcom need to have the times changed today. Hopefully that will also get my blood sugars back on track! 

Please remember to spring forward all of your diabetic devices too. If you need help to change the time on your Dexcom or Omnipod, click here to read an old post with step by step instructions
