Infusion during sensor warm-up

I am always high after the two hour warm-up following a sensor change. I just realized that when I am in 670G auto mode, my Basal (micro Bolus) Insulin is not being infused during the warm-up.

Does anyone else experience this and how do you compensate for the lack of insulin? I’m thinking of switching to manual mode during the warm-up. Does this make sense?


During this period your preset basal amounts is being delivered. You inserted thsoe amounts for non auto mode operations. One thing you might do is increase your non automode basal amounts.

If I have inserted a pump set at the same time as the new sensor I will usually give an extra until post insertion and then check no later than an hour later and then make corrections to prevent the high.
