For the past 10 days my average insulin usage has been 27 units/ day. This 30% decrease has taken place very slowly and I was totally unaware of how much it was. I'll have to remember that when I transition from different periods of more or less stress. It seems to be one of the largest factors that I can recognize.
When I was having issues with my heart last week I was asked by many people if I was stressed out. I was pretty adamant that I've been feeling very little anxiety, and that my heart was totally out of sync with my mental state. In fact, when I was in the hospital, I had to reduce my basal rate because I couldn't eat most of the food that they offered to cardiac patients. It was maybe a bit stressful to be hospitalized because it was my first stay in the hospital, that I can remember. I was kind of fasting in there. I plan to write about it sometime.
