Re: [IP] High blood sugar after pump start



Bill, I remember being high like that when I started pumping because it
apparently takes time to regulate BG's. Check for ketones - contact the
people that you need to contact: diabetes educator, etc. Having ketones is
always the deciding factor for me of taking a shot by syringe or having
sugars not go down with a bolus before changing a site, etc. For myself,
insulin takes some time ( 2 hrs) to show a BG change. A test an hour later
indicating my BG is going down a little bit shows me the site is working
helping me gain confidence that it will continue to go down all right. Take
care and I hope all goes well. Sharon B.
