With sustained BG in the 200s, I would bolus a few times to see if that
helped. I would go to a temporary basal rate increase if the bolusing alone
didn't resolve it and it seemed to be running consistently high. I would
test more frequently (hourly?).
This is an example of a situation in which pumping is far superior to
injecting as a therapeutic approach. Small amounts of fast acting insulin
with precision on a much shorter term basis.
Has anyone used their pump to get normal BGs despite taking cortisone
