Took a two day road trip: Thursday was a concert in one city and Friday a rodeo in another, all near enough to home, but we made it an early weekend.
Doing great all week prior, readings even a little low. Had pre concert dinner(not the best choice, but fish and chips. Bolused square over 1.5 hours to cover known carbs and tested at 57,) went to the concert, walked, moved, had a great time. About an hour into the concert, sensor alarm at 72, BG check was 63. Had a small glucose lifter, after the concert at the hotel tested at 253. Figured it was the food. Corrected with a shot, went to sleep. Every 2 hours that night I was alarmed for a high BG (mine is set at 200,) got up tested (usually higher than sensor)and corrected took over 9 units between 12:30am and 7:30 am, which is an astonishing amount of insulin for me. (My normal basal/bolus total are about 12)
Friday morning, still got up at 226, took a shot and changed pump kit. Easy lovely day touring the by ways of Virginia, small smart dinner, rodeo, lots of walking, cheering, etc. Again had a low at the rodeo but did NOT treat, but tested at 59. Back at hotel couple of hours later tested at 223. HUGE rise. Set temp basal at 125%, took another correction using the same syringe, and had a low reading about 2am. Shut off temp basal, no corrective action. Woke up at 219. Corrected with the third shot from the used syringe. Upped temp basal to 125%. No breakfast, corrected via pump about mid-morning at 165. Landed at home, starvingly hungry at 151. Changed kit, new bottle if insulin, had a tomato and bread sandwich at 12:30. Bolused appropriately. At 2:30 tested 196, corrected and went back to 125% temp bolus.
Not sick, no UTIs, but overly stressed by this weirdness. Not overly stressed. OUTRAGEOUSLY stressed. Trying to calm down.
I HATE THIS DISEASE. So tired of all the problems. Ideas?
