I have an interesting situation that I thought I'd bring up, to see if anyone else has run into this.
First, background - Type 2, insulin pump since July 2013, and love it.
I came down with a head cold over this past weekend, and was sick up through Tuesday. But since Tuesday, I've been running into what appears to be a change in my insulin sensitivity. The thing is, it's the opposite of what I've seen previously when sick.
When I've been sick previously, my BGs would always run higher than normal, and I would have to compensate with additional boluses. This time though, my BGs are constantly running low, sometimes barely rising above 100 after meals. I've had several low episodes in the last three days, and am finding that my BGs are just staying low (which is probably a good thing, but just different).
I have not been taking any cold medicine since Tuesday, so I cannot attribute it to that. The only other real change in my behavior is that I've been drinking a good bit of hot tea. I wasn't exercising at all while I was sick, and yesterday (Wednesday) was the first day that I felt like getting out to walk.
My infusion site is no different from what I normally use, so I cannot seem to associate it with a better connection. And this has been verified with both CGM and meter.
Any ideas or similar situations from you all?
