Quickly: I went out for dinner last night (Chinese) took my normal amount for the 70 carbs that usually works well. Was 181 2 hours later and corrected carefully, as I would go to sleep soon. At 2am I was 254, corrected at the normal ratio. Sensor (did not do a meter glucose)showed 118 at 7 am (I slept in) and I tested at 188 at 9 am. Changed out my pump and corrected with the new insulin. One hour later, I am 214 and continue to rise quickly.
I don't think this is caused by dinner. I think the insulin was going wonko and the overnight basal was ineffective. (My basal testing has been really good lately) That would cause the rise this morning? Say it was working like at half strength, my corrections were only half effective, as were the basla doses.
And,as many of you have pointed out to me, I am totally OCD about high glucose levels. I have been doing a much better job at not over correcting, as that has gotten me into low trouble. But over 200 still gets to me big time, so I am exercising bigtime controlof my temptation to overcorrect at the moment.....
Do you think I am on the right track here? Thanks!
