Am I suffering from Gastroparesis?
Last night we celebrated Rosh Hashanah with the family. Good numbers predinner. Not a horribly obnoxious meal. Planned to eat some dessert so I pumped for 70 carbs (HUGE for me)ate carefully, but ate a small dessert. For 3 hours after the meal, I got a low reading from my sensor and meter--as low as 40. Drank a little OJ. At 3:00 AM I was 249. Corrected. At 7:00AM I was 217. My flipping pump looks like the Himalayas for the last 24 hours..
After much hard work and judicious pumping and testing, was 83 at dinner. Carbed correctly with a square wave, as I did last night, and once again am crashing for NO reason. After 50 carbs of food at 5:00. Am 63 at 6:50 PM with 1.9 units left to deliver.
HMMMM. If I correct with carbs to bring the low up it will cause an over 200 reading. Even if I don't corrected and try to wait it out, the low will eventually take me back in the 200s.
First, what would you do? I am alone here.... and very frightened of being low and of being 250....BG is till going down on sensor--at 60 now.
Second, is this Gastroparesis? I have done what I can to work around it....
