[IP] being sick and BG's....help (hack hack cough)
I caught a nasty cold and have spent the last couple of days feeling close
to miserable. As always, when I'm sick, my BG's went through the roof.
Here's what I did:
Yesterday mornin': 9:42 91
1:00 282 oops bolused 4 units
3:00 338 what the heck??? Changed my site,
just in case (it worked fine all day yesterday, that's when I changed it).
I gave myself a shot of 5 units. Upped my basals to 140%.
8:57 125 Turned basal rate back to 120%
just to see what happens next.
10:00 239 bolused 2, turned the basals up
to 140% again.
12:34 a.m. 300!!!! For cryin' out loud.
Bolused 4. Fell asleep on couch. Slept hard until 9:16 this morning when
my sugar was an 89. I didn't feel like eating so I left things as is,
keeping my basals at 140%. At 11;30 it was a 237. Bolused 3.
1:30 87. Sigh. I hate feeling like
Is this how it normally goes for y'all when you're sick? Or is it sort of a
guessing game right now because it's my first time being sick with the pump?
To be honest I'm somewhat pleased, on MDI I would have been going from a 500
to a 40 in a two hour time span, so I'm happy in that it's not such a wide
swing, and that I don't feel worse because of that. Is there anything else
I should be doing? I don't have any ketones; CDE said that it doesn't sound
like I'm doing too bad of a job with it, but to let her know if I start
having any major problems.
Thanks in advance -
