Red Sox low Diabetes365 day 21I'm still recovering from lost sleep due to the World Series. Remember I come from Ireland originally, so I'm still really learning about baseball. But having the Sox win in 2004 really got me interested.
And then there was the final game on Sunday. It's 11:30 at night and we're heading towards the end of the game.
Thanks to my Dexcom CGM, I'd watched my blood sugar heading lower. But I didn't want to miss the game to correct it. Finally I tested with my OneTouch, and it pretty much agreed with the Dexcom.
So I had to run downstairs to get some quick-acting carbohydrates to bring my blood sugar up to a normal range.
About 30 minutes later my blood sugar was closer to 100 mg/dL and the game was over. Victory for the Red Sox and a safe enough blood glucose reading that I could go to sleep.
There's no cure for diabetes. Yet.
