I’ve been on Auto mode since April, give or take. While the system has done wonders to reduce my A1C and I’m thankful for that, it isn’t without problems…
The one that’s troubling me right now though is that between roughly 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm, my pump over-delivers. So I’ll check my blood sugar at or just before 5 PM and it’s normal. Then I drive home. By the time I get home and get settled, my blood sugar may have dropped by as much as 30 or 40 points, from a level of 100 to 140 to 60 to 70 in less than an hour. If I’m active and not just commuting (say, going to the store and walking around for 20 minutes or etc.) I’m practically guaranteed to go below 60 in that hour. If dinner is delayed past our normal 6 PM or so, I’m more likely to go low. So if I plan to have a late dinner or to do anything physical after work, I know to snack first or else.
I eat lunch between 11:30 and 12, so the meal bolus is long done by this time.
It’s nuts. This happens at least 2 or 3 times a week. So yeah. The AI is trying to kill me. ^
^ (This is hyperbole. Please note that fact.)
Has anyone else experienced a pattern of lows with the 670 Auto Mode? My diabetes specialist said there wasn’t anything she could do, so I’m kind of at a loss.
