I have a favorite blood sugar reading. Can you guess what it is?
…Probably not. So I’ll just tell you. My favorite blood sugar reading of all time is…
I can justify my favoritism for this seemingly random reading, too. For starters, 115 literally contains my favorite number ever, 5. (I think it’s my favorite number because I was born in the fifth month, May, and it’s so easy to count in multiples of 5.)
115 also represents “perfect” stability to me. I’m guaranteed not to feel the shakiness of a low or the grumpiness of a high at this level. At 115, I can most likely even have a small snack (no more than 15 carbs, but still) and not have to take a single drop of insulin for it (given that I’m exercising for at least 15 minutes post-snack-consumption, of course).
Hmm…there’s definitely a pattern going on there with that trifecta of fifteens, but I digress.
A blood sugar of 115 makes me feel…invincible. Almost like I’m the proud owner of a functioning pancreas.
