Started on the pod yesterday afternoon. I was pleasantly surprised that I barely felt the cannula insertion. I was expected a slight pain but it really was virtually pain free. No problem with the adhesive yet. I was a little anxious about it ripping off while I slept so it took me awhile to fall asleep. Finally fell asleep and when I woke up this morning it was still firmly attached, so yay!
Here are my BG readings since the pod was activated.
1st meal 85 premeal, 98 2 hours after meal
2nd meal 84 pre meal 93 2 hours after meal(about half hour before bedtime so i didn't do a pre bedtime test)
I did go low about an hour and a half before my second meal. Had a 59, probably becase i was pumping but still had some Lantus in my system from the day before.
i woke up at 2:50 to check it again and it was 48(yikes) took some glucose tablets, rechecked 20 minutes later, it was 59(still yikes) took one more glucose tab, ate some peanut butter, drank half a glass of milk and fell back asleep. checked again when I woke up in the morning, it was 146. ate breakfast, checked 2 hours later, it was 163. took a correction bolus and I will check again in about an hour from now.
I know there is an adjustment period going from MDI to the pump. How long did it take you guys to get it right?
