Had my second (and apparently last) endocrinology appointment for the year today. hg A1C is heading in the right direction, *DL is right where it should be, K is a bit high (no doubt due to over-consumption of Diet Pepsi -- got to find some sucralose-sweetened cola with a heap of caffeine), but it won't kill me. It's just an outlying number that the endocrinologist couldn't explain until I pointed the source out to him. I've managed to drop my insulin doses by 30-50% and bring the numbers to a much more consistent state than they were before.

A lot of this is no doubt due to cutting out the gluten. Before it seemed that there was a hidden factor that affected me on a day-by-day, and often meal-by-meal basis -- it just seemed that consistent dosing brought inconsistent results. Looking back it seems likely that was a reaction to the gluten causing my digestion to do dodgy things. I feel a heck of a lot better now that I'm off the stuff, anyway.
