Re: [IP] Marti - severe low, was: Calling on the Experienced!
Thank you all for your responses to my problem.
Bob, I prefer glucose tablets too and use them exclusively, along with some
protein like cheese or milk. I probably should have continued with them
instead of switching to high fat foods like p-nut butter cups and cookies
(although these things always worked in the past). Perhaps the gastroparesis
has changed over the years and I haven't realized it since I never have any
episodes of it.
I don't think my pump was at fault (although I did put it on suspend about 1/2
hour into this) and I still believe that I bolused correctly at lunch. I
didn't have a lot of fat in my lunch as it was one of the low-fat frozen
entrees with the carb count on the box.
I do have Glucagon in the house, but I was hesitant to use that since I never
fell below 60 and was able to consume carbs. I think I might have been too
dizzy to mix that up and I was alone.
I am not aware of any illness present or particularly heavy stress. I am
still experiences lows today. I have decreased my basals and am bolusing only
half what I normally would for meals. (1 unit per 30 carbs). I think I'm
going to skip my workout tomorrow until I get a better feel for what is going
on. Maybe I'm going into remission!!!!!
