Hi. I’ve been a type 1 for 34 years and a pump user for 20. As of about five years ago, my doctor refers to me as a brittle diabetic because from one day to the next, I have dramatically different insulin needs. After 2 seizures in 6 years -the second of which landed me in the ICU for a week with a TBI - with no forewarning low sugar or bolus on board, I was really excited about the Minimed 670g.
Here’s the problem. When Auto Mode works, I can have a beautiful day hovering around 130. Even when I have a ‘running way high’ day, it still does better than I could with my 630 and pre-programmed settings. The problem is that it won’t let me set my target higher than 120 (yeah, I know about the 150 temp) and it’s constantly overshooting. When you only take about 0.5/hr in pre-programmed basal, it’s hard to turn around a falling sugar.
Anyone know any way to completely override the system and change my target to a higher number? Like 175? If I’m aiming for that higher number, maybe the pump can’t overshoot to 40 again.
Thanks for any advice (and any computer programmers that have figured this sh*t out).
