wow, am I frustrated now…
I have yet to see this damned thing perform a bolus that seems to do what a bolus should… you know that whole “lowering your blood sugar” thing
I’m pretty sure I am ketotic now… got all the fun symptoms tiredness, thirst, cranky (more than normal), a little nausea now and again.
And guess what? my CDE is out of the office until Friday. I called into my doc’s triage nurse, hopefully I’ll hear back soon. I am getting to the point where I am about to send this damn thing back. I’ve been on it less than I week and I can see a hospital trip peeking over the horizon, be my first one in over 20 years (how many of you remember the days when all the various type of insulin came in bottles exactly the same shape, size, and color? I do, and the really hot female EMT that took me to the ER… ah those were the days)
We adjusted my carb ratio from 1:15 down to 1:10 yesterday. Even if I don’t eat when I do a bolus, my sugars still go either go up or come down very little. I’m just not seeing the behavior I would expect to see. Hell, at this rate,I’ll be out of my monthly supply of test strips by the 15th.
I’ll quit complaining now and just sit here and be cranky
