high bg on a pump
type 1 diabetic, 36 y.o., suddenly, my sugars are running consistently high. i am afraid to eat anything. i'm on an insulin pump. i took a correction bolus dose before bed (reading was at 300), correction dose in the morning when i woke up (reading was at 290), i haven't eaten at all today and i just checked to find my sugar was 240. what could possibly be happening? i have no fever. i might be dehydrated, but i've been trying to drink water today in case that is the problem.
could it be my insulin pump placement areas? I generally use left upper arm for 72 hours, right upper arm for 72 hours, left belly for 72 hours, right belly for 72 hours, lower left back for 72 hours and then right lower back for 72 hours.
do these spots get used up?
I don't know what to do. :...(((((
also: i have been running no fever. the highs have been running on and off for a week or two. i'm at a loss.
afraid to eat anything.
