Early am I had eaten a snack, bg was crashing so shut off basal, it stabilized and I resumed after 15 minutes with my normal rate. Finger stick was 98 going down. An hour later I see it spiking, test and it is 190 going up. I decide maybe it’s the inset but there is no pain etc. first I did a correction to stop a major spike. As I remove the inset blood is literally gushing everywhere, I blotted it for a while with tissues, and eventually put my new inset in. I have a blue bruise where the needle was and the whole area is swollen and yellow and itchy.
Any ideas why this suddenly came on? I had one that bled a bit in the past but this was crazy.
I put a new otc topical antibiotic on it with tetracycline which is supposed to be better than the others and which cost a fortune and I’m hoping it will heal well.
I ended up having to wait 2-3 hours to go to sleep to do another correction since bg sat at 200 or more but at one point it seemed to be dropping so I still wasn’t sure If the original correction was working or if it all came out with the blood.
