Hi, gang. I’ve had T1D since 1975, and currently use the Omnipod pump and Dexcom G6. I’m focused and diligent about diet, exercise, and diabetes management.
I returned a week ago from a trip to Hawaii (I know, life is tough!) and since then I’m really struggling to get my BGs down. I’m hanging in the 150-225 range and in spite of correction boluses, long walks, carb restriction, pump changes, and breaking out a new bottle of insulin, nothing works. Gah!
Complicating matters is that I am between endos (my wonderful guy left last fall and I don’t see a new one until next month) and sadly my primary care doc just died. Adding to what the experts call “barriers to care” is that I live on an island and every specialist is on the mainland, a two hour round trip boat ride away.
Sorry, this has now turned into a poor poor pitiful me rant! Does anybody have any helpful ideas to tide me over until next month? This community is a great brain trust, so thanks in advance for your help.
