So, I started my first Omni experience last night. Endo figured it would be best to start at the end of my lantus cycle. Based upon calculation (40 of lantus, and an average of 20 units of Novo daily) we start with a basal of 1.2.
Pod went on without a hitch and going into bed I was at a comfy 82. Ate a banana for a snack, bolused a little bit under for it (was nervous about the pod, and not having the lantus on board). Went to sleep and woke up at around 2:30 with my Dexcom G4 screaming UNDER 70! at me. I checked it and it just said "low". I ran for my Freestyle light and sure enough I checked and got the dreaded 'lo'. Normally when it's that bad, OJ and 2 glucose tabs have me moving up in minutes. Took 8oz and 2 tabs and started the scary wait. 15 minutes later, 32 with a down arrow. More OJ and waiting. It ended up taking me about an hour and 3 glasses of OJ to get above 70.
Finally got to sleep, and was woken back up by the "high" alarm. Checked and I was at 230. Took a correction to cover for all of the juice and to ring me back down. Woke up a few hours later at 120. At this point I adjusted my basal to .80, got ready for work and my son off to school. Halfway to the office, I stopped in for breakfast, checked G4 and I was down to 80 with a down arrow. Ate a munchkin and finished the drive in. Felt kinda shaky at my desk, checked : G4 69, FS : 62. Again, glucose tabs and OJ. It quickly sprang back above 80 and stayed there. I at my wheat bagel and bolused for 6 units (I'm 1 unit per 8g of carb so this was actually a few units lower than I go). About 20 minutes later, I hear my G4 buzzing. 'LOW' again :\ Finger test confirms 'lo' reading. So I suspend the pod, and spend the next 20 minutes waiting for food to kick in at near black out level.
Finally, called my endo and he advised to stop the pod. I go back in later this week to talk to the pump team again. Hopefully round 2 will be better. Sorry this was long :\ It's been a rough day.
