So earlier today, I had my first “no delivery” alarm on my minimed. In an airport, about to board a plane.
I had just changed the site yesterday, so I just wiggled the tubing around and tried again. This time it was fine, so I went ahead and ate my breakfast.
20 minutes later I had the worst low ever – 37, but felt worse – I was sweating so much it literally drenched my clothes in seconds, and was dripping off my face.
So I figured that maybe it was a FALSE no delivery alarm. I could have slightly overcounted the carbs for breakfast, but only by a bit – at worst enough to go to 60 or something. And I really don’t think I did. I think I got a double dose from the pump.
So I ate a ***pile of skittles. Because I felt like I was still dropping and this was passing-out territory. And because I figured that if I DID bolus twice, that was 30 missing grams of carbs. But of course I overdid it and was 267 an hour later… and am trying to get it under control now.
So. What SHOULD I have done? (Other than eating fewer skittles…) Do you think the pump did give a false alarm?
