[IP] Blood Sugar Highs
I've only been on a pump for 2 months. The past two
nights I have had sugars in the 200 & 300's. I
started around 7:00 or 8:00 each night to bring them
down but no matter how much insulin I gave myself I
could not get them down. By about 11:30 each night
they started to decline. My days are higher than they
were but not like these highs in the evening.
Last night I changed the site, called mini med and
called the RN training me. I have to say anytime I
have a problem mini med customer service has been
great. I also have to say I love this Paradigm pump.
I am just now starting to return to normal. How do
you even go about figuring out what happened? I'm
sure with experience it will get easier but I'm
baffled. I have a few thoughts. I am using the quick
set. This last time I changed the site I did not put
tape around it. I don't know why. Just forgot I
guess. Could that have caused it?
Is there such a thing as a bad site?
I started an anti inflammatory almost a week ago. I
noticed my mornings have been higher since starting
My doctor has not called back yet to tell me what to
do. The RN mentioned maybe setting a higher temp
basal. I faxed my numbers to him this morning.
I also had a pretty stressful weekend. Any thoughts
from those more experienced. Thanks.
