So this past week, I have been having some major issues getting my BGs under control. A little background:
1. Last week, I switched from Apidra to Humalog
2. I've been suffering from some sinussy stuff for the last few weeks (actually had to get a CT scan cause the doctor can see something up there - a polyp or whatever).
3. My sinuses and my high BGs, plus work have my nerves going nuts.
So since Friday, I've been having a really hard time keeping my numbers under 170, and I am taking 30-50% more humalog than apidra. So below is Saturday night:
8:00pm - 127
12:15am - 147 - Its been 4 hours since I shot up
4:30am - 298 - This is offically the highest number I have ever seen
4:30am - took 2 units
7:30am - 257
7:30am - took 2 more units
10:00am - 197
10:00am - ate a half a slice of toast and eggs, and took 3 more units which is three times what I would have taken for Apidra
12:00pm - mowed the yard and got my heart up - 175 afterwards.
Anyways, the trend continues. In the middle of the night now, three times, I have taken 2 units and the next time I check 2-3 hours later, its the same number. I'm not sure if my basal went bad (its been out of the fridge for about 1 1/2 weeks - but this is what I ahve always done), the humalog isn't working well, or the stress?
