I need some help with my 670G. I’m running auto mode. My blood sugar is running high long after it should come down post-meal. The last week it’s been staying at or increasing to around 200 between 10-11:30 am and then again at 3-4 pm. Unacceptable. So I’ve reduced carb ratios and over estimated my carbs (based on my reasonable guesses by reading labels) also today I took a bolus by going out of auto mode and then back in about 15 minutes later.
The durn thing quit giving me micro boluses for 45 minutes after I took than manual correction, so now it’s only 150. I only ate a max of 35 carbs today but bolused for 50, just to catch phantom carbs and any extra carbs floating in my fats/condiments.
I’m at 1:8.5 carbs during the day, I’m afraid to go much lower because I don’t want to crash and my 1-2 hr post meal #s aren’t bad. My active insulin time is 2 hours. And my bolus/basal ratio is 52% v 48%. So pretty optimal there.
What else can I do to make it run at 120 instead of averaging 160?
I do have an endo appointment on 9/25, so if it’s not solved with us, I can always ask for more help. Maybe auto mode doesn’t work for me…
