Urgh… I had one of those nights yesterday with stubborn sugars that just won’t come down. I didn’t haven’t anything out of the ordinary for dinner - had a small breadroll with some protein (meat, egg and cheese) and some lentil soup and a small apple which I bolus for 45g.
After dinner I saw my sugar climb slowly, levelled out about 100mg and after about 10-15 mins started to climb again and wouldn’t come down. I was micro bolusing around 0.5 units at a time on its incline and did it about 4 times and also manually injected 1 unit of insulin (I still had 4u of IOB left). It hovered around just under the 200mg mark for most of the night despite my repeated attempts to bolus it down with the recommended adjustment bolus (in addition to the microboluses I had given earlier). By the morning i was at 170mg and I waited an hour for my prebolus to kick in before I had my breakfast.
I am always paranoid that I had underbolus everytime my sugar is off but I’m not really sure I did. My breadroll is the one i usually eat in the morning for breakfast which i account for 30g (and thats being generous), there’s probably 10g in the soup and 5g for the small apple (which i had shared a quarter to my dogs) so it seemed okay.
The only other thing I can think of is I did a cartridge change yesterday with a new batch of insulin. But I just had lunch and my insulin seem to be working.
So no idea why my sugar was so stubborn yesterday. Even if I had under bolused, a correction should have brought it down nicely with the amount I was injecting.
Just to add to this, while this was happening, I was watching one of Stephen Ponders webcasts talking about how to manage and react to blood sugars (an author that @MM1 had recommended in an earlier post) Obviously my sugars were watching with me and educated itself to not let me overcome it.
