Nothing works, only highs and lows?
I just forgot my basal-bolus injection last night and the CGM-Curve looked like a huge mountain this morning. It took me a few units of insulin, a bicycle ride and I had to wait two hours for the insulin to get my blood sugar level into the ‘green’ zone again.

My Diabetes Tip for you
Activity always helps me to lower my sugar more quickly. Sometimes I take the stairs, go to work by bike or even walk home. Sometimes it works better than I thought and therefore I can give you the advice always take sugar with you. To lower the risk of high and low blood sugar levels, don’t overact! Otherwise your Glucose-Curve looks like a rollercoaster. Be patient and wait for your insulin. This can take a while…
Diabetes related Spotify Playlist
I just stumbled about a few Spotify titles that got my attention. Most of the lyrics refer to a different context but I guess every diabetic can understand how I interpreted them. They remind me on my difficult diabetes days and some songs are actually not that bad.
Here are a few Song examples
- High at Night | Alle Farben, Lowell
- When I Get Low, I Get High | The Speakeasy Three
- Sugar, Sugar | The Archies
- Sugar, we’re Going Down | Fall Out Boy
If you are on Spotify you can listen to them, I just created a Diabeteslifehacks Spotify Playlist called highs & lows. Don’t hesitate to send me your diabetes related songs and I’ll add them.
