Most of you drive a car. Or ride a bike. Or a scooter, or rollerblade, or something that propels you forward beyond your two feet.
Think about how you steer.
You make small movements in one direction, then small corrections in the other direction in order to continue going in a straight line.
This is the same with diabetes management -- and Dr. Bernstein's Law Of Small Numbers.
Small inputs (food & insulin) create the small movements -- and require only small corrections (glucose or insulin) when needed.
If you contrast that with big inputs, in driving OR diabetes management, you'll go zooming in one direction or the other, requiring large corrections.
Worst case scenario, you crash, with potentially tragic consequences.
Are you experiencing unexplained low or high blood sugar readings? Do you know about basal testing? Here's information - including free downloads for both pumps and MDI - that explains how to do basal testing and how to interpret the results.
If you want to drive in a straight line, you need turn the steering wheel using small, controlled movements. You over-correct and you crash. Diabetes management is the exact same. In order to avoid potentially tragic results, use small inputs and small corrections.
