Re: [IP] Can anyone tell me whats going on
This happens to me too! I have been on a pump for 13 years and have never
been able to figure it out but it is sure frustrating. I was wondering if
it may be related to menstrual cycles, but I thought I was alone. Any of
you guys have this happen?
I just got a new endocrinologist, so I will ask him about it next Thursday.
As for bolusing before bed, I do if I am really high (over 250). I think
it is potentially dangerous but I have been doing the pump thing for long
enough that I have not had a problem. I always use less than I think I
need and have juice nearby. Talk to your doctor before you try it!!
