Over the weekend, I forgot to bring some home, and didn't have it for 2 days. My blood sugar levels crept upwards during the weekend. Upon returning to work, I started it up again, and by Tuesday I was having lower and more stable glucose numbers. Of course, there are other possible factors... like warm weather, weekend food, stuff like that...
Here is an article that seems to go along with my experience.
I'm going to include some of my data that will explain why I'm so intrigued by this phenomena.
|The first day I drank Yerba Mate tea. Perhaps one of the best days of glucose control I've had in a while.|
|Not only did I use less insulin those days, I also ran lower glucose numbers. Notice the creep up on the weekend.|
|While Sunday, 3/18, looks to be a low insulin day, I lowered my basal for a 20 mile bike ride, and my BG was higher overall.|
