Nonstop Victory – Insulin Use Down And I Didn’t Give Up!

I have type 1 diabetes and I wear an insulin pump. I was looking at my insulin usage from the days before I was in keto and the days I was in keto. Before, I took 100-110 units a day and most were bolus. On keto, I take 40-45 units a day, and most of it is at baseline. What do I mean by bolus and basal? Bolus insulin is where I tell the pump to feed me insulin and correct my high blood glucose. Basal is what gives me the pump to maintain my blood glucose level. My other nsv: I didn’t eat the goodies I baked. I baked some goodies for my co-workers and left some of the house for my partner. When I got home from work, there were still a couple of goodies left. I picked one up, put it against my mouth and thought “think insulin.” He left it and decided to make something to eat instead. This is my first big “self-control” moment and I’m so proud!
