Hard to calculate in honeymoon though. I've noticed I go low often so I don't mind a high of 15 as by morning I'll be in the 3s. I prefer a high to a low, unless it's going up to about 20 then I'll take a few units.

Newly diagnosed early last month. experienced my first hypos after 3 weeks. I get a jittery feeling, like extremely anxious when had a fight or an argument. Do you get that? Thank you for doing these podcasts, I'm interested in learning about diabetes so I can make it part of my life without feeling confused when it doesn't go right.
