I have been a type 1 for 35 years using a pump and sometimes a CGM (Medtronic). My average A1C is 6 to 6.5. Over the last 2.5 months, my average BG is 250 or higher. I watch what I eat and for the most part very low carb meals with little to no bread etc. I exercise every day. I have made ambitious correction boluses even with shots and changing of insulin / Novalog. Even more frustrating, exercise that normally causes my BG to go down has no effect. When I fast, I see little movement until after I skip at least two meals. I feel like I’m just giving myself insulin and nothing happens.
I just dont know what to think. About halfway into this issue, I stumbled upon a bulging disc in my neck. The pain has is a lot better but it is still present in my arm but more of an annoyance if anything.
I really dont know where to go next. I can believe that I now take 4X my insulin or more and still stay high. I have adjusted basals about 40% higher. Going to see endo this week but I have a feeling it is going to be increase your insulin and have a nice day.
