[IP] CAUSE?????? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had my first real site problem today. I would like your option as to what
could have caused it so I can avoid the problem in the future.
My bs was ok when I go up this morning 6:45am. I showered and changed the
site and then had brkfst. My bs two hours later was 296. I bolused an
adjustment and waited. It made no sense. I had 45 carbs with a 20-1 ratio
and bolused accordingly. I had remembered that I did not feel comfortable
when filling the resv. earlier. I took out 160 units when there were about
200 units left in the vial. It had more bubbles than usual which were harder
to get rid of this time. I also considered that perhaps the insulin was not
good because it was so little in the vial for a few days. While I
waited for my bs to go down, I opened the pump and noticed a large bubble
around the size of a pea in the resv. I disconnected, removed the resv., got
rid of the bubble, pushed on the end of the resv. until I saw a drop, put
the resv. back, primed 5.0 units and reconnected. Now twenty minutes after
the 296 Bs, my bs was 280. I waited an hour and a half and my Bs was 246.
Two hours had passed inbetween the 296 and the 246. I removed everything and
threw it away and started over. I noticed that when I removed the canular,
it did not have any blood on it but a heavy spurt of blood came out after it.
I then bolused an adjustment for the 246 and am waiting for the bs to come
Perhaps the remaining 200 units which I drew 160 U from was not that stable?
Perhaps all the insulin was pooled in the blood under it but not visible to
I would appreciate any help you could give me with this.
