Thanks for all of those suggestion!
However, and frustating again, I have tried a lot of those!!
a few weeks ago I was on a CBCM (continuous blood glucose monitor) for a week to see if we could figure out what was going on just with my midnight to morning numbers and we did correct/make some changes to my basal rate. So i did what you suggested (made sure I had the correct rate at midnight on) and I do. So scratch that good idea (I was hoping that was it adn would solve all!).
I just recently opened a new bottle of insulin so I don't think that is it - the expiration date is april of 2013 or something like that. I changed my pump yesterday, so maybe that is it. I have been using the same general areas since I got my pump about 6 years ago.
That is the thing that 'worries' me about the pump - aren't we all going to 'run out of places' to put this thing after a while? i look forward to the inhalable insulin coming to the market. hopefully its as good as i've been reading.
today my numbers have been really high and ive eaten much in terms of amount or carbs. I woke up at 360 then an hour later, haven eaten nothing, was 460. So i bolused again, waited about two hours then ate something because it was getting near lunch and had a carb-free homemade pizza (use riced cauliflower instead of dough) and a bite of my husbands burrito. I calculated that to be about 30 carbs (which I thought was over estimating, just to be on the safe side). Well, here we are now about 5 hours after i ate that and have had nothing since and i'm still reading in the 300's. It's getting really frustrating and to the point that I feel sick.
I appreciate any and all thoughts.
