I’ve been on the pod for 6 months-so still quite new to figuring out placement. Every pod, no exaggeration, has brought post pod change highs (up to 12 hours post change, fasting, and over 250), an acceptable 2nd day (numbers between 70-150), and awful 3rd day bs. I’ve tried every site imaginable, altered my basal, my carb ratio, set up temp. basals, tried Apidra, Novolog, and Humalog-I was seriously considering heading back to MDI (which I haven’t done since 1999).
But today I tried an angled insertion-it was perfect! No post pod change bolusing, no extra bolus at my following meal, no temp. basal-just perfect, beautiful blood sugars. Has anyone found this true in your care? Have you noticed a difference between straight versus angled insertion? I’m having a hard time figuring out why it would make such a huge difference. Anyone care to offer an explanation?
