Blood glucose reading
Does anybody here use a blood glucose meter?

OK. cool. Well...here is my question. When I get up at 4:20am...I have a maltodextrin/whey shake. Malto is 100grams, with 10grams of MCT and 50grams of Whey. By 5am I am at the gym training. I get out by 6:15am and then down a shake in my car. The shake is 100grams of Dextrose and 50 whey. I'm currently taking GH at 6ius per day.
I take 2ius before I leave to the gym. Another 2 at around 1pm and another 2 before bed at 10pm. I'm going to start using slin soon. But I only want to use it for postworkout. Probably the most I would do is between 4-6ius for postworkout. So in regards to the blood glucose meter. When should I take my readings?
When I get out of the gym?
Before I down the dextrose shake?
Before I take the slin?
After the slin and dextrose?
And what readings should it say?

If you are trying to time your dextrose shake when the slin startes to take effect that will depend of the type of slin your using and how its injected. Obviously humalog is the fasted acting slin and if injected IM it will start to take effect even faster as opposed to sub-q. IMO I wouldn't use anything other humalog(or another fast acting slin)....and I always inject IM.....it takes effect faster and its out of your system faster. Any glucose readings below 80 are considered hypo. Normal range is 80-120.

I took my blood this morning and it was at 65. I didn't feel hypo at all! Sleepy and weak. But not like I was going to pass out!
