Re: [IPk] Advice please
Just a thought, but I recently had two days of unusually high spiking
after meals and generally higher than normal BG levels (which reduced
periodically). Then, when I came to change the cannula, when I took
it out it was slightly bent. This meant that some insulin was
getting in, but not all. Might be worth doing a set change to see,
unless of course this has been going on after several set changes.
Just thought I'd mention it. Hope things sort out soon.
