For the past week, my correction doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Urgh!!!.
I know my insulin and site is working because I see my sugars come down after 20 mins when I bolus for food. But when my BG is sitting around +/- 10mmol(180mg), my corrections doesn’t seem to make the slightest impact. If my correction was supposed to be say 0.5units, I seem to need to be injecting an extra 3 units (and I do this manually with a pen syringe to rule out site and insulin issues) before it starts to come down and even then it falls short of landing at my target BG. Particularly during night time where I struggle with the reduction in BG the most.
My correction factor is already strong sitting at 1u:2mmol/L (32mg), I’m not sure whether I should make it any stronger, when its combined with a bolus for a meal, it seems to be okay but when I’m just correcting a BG without bolusing for food, it struggles.
Right now microbolusings are not working for me at all, anything less than 1u seems to do zilch.
