I never get this right... I have a mild to moderate cold with head congestion and the usual stuff. My BGs are running high as you would expect, so this morning I set a temp basal of 120% on my pump. My sugar is still high (160, 3 hours post-prandial), but I'm hesitant to keep upping my basal because I know there's some lag time involved before it levels out. How long should I wait between adjustments? Has anyone figured out a tried and true method for dealing with a cold without wrecking a long string of good numbers? (next A1C test is in just 2 weeks!!!) How much do you increase your basal? Is there a right way to do this, or do you also use the "hit or miss" approach, like me? I figure by the time I get it straightened out myself, my cold will be gone (hopefully!). Thanks for any advice!
