I’ve been trialing whether Fiasp is any good for me. I’m on my third vial now and I’m using it on the pump. I don’t know whether it’s Fiasp not working, but there are some days where my sugar is crazy high and I’m injecting like 10 units with the anticipation of eating soon, only to find my sugar not drop after the 20 min mark… and sometimes even start climbing upwards. I didn’t have breakfast this morning, though i bolused for one… and my sugar is still hovering in the 150-160 mg mark despite me giving correction boluses throughout the morning. I ended up skipping breakfast altogether since I couldn’t get my sugar under 100.
Then came lunch, same thing happened. I bolused around 1 hour ago and I’m still in the 150-160 range withe the BG drifting up. Also to add, I’ve got my temp basal set to 150% - my sugar should be coming down by now. URGH!!! What is going on???
I’ve just given myself another 6 units manual injection of novorapid and hoping it will come down after 20 mins… it may stack with the other 6 units of fiasp I already have on board but at this point I don’t think its actually doing anything. Something is not right, I’ve been high all morning and nothing seems to be working.
**Update - My manual injection of novolog has started working after 20 mins and my sugar is on the way down. Given this is the second time this has happened in 7 days, I’m scared to use Fiasp any further in the pump. I’m not sure whether a manual injection of Fiasp would have brought my sugar down, it didn’t the last time it happened but I only bolused a small amount that time (like 1-2units).
