Another diabetic fail to add to the list.
Test two hours after lunch 5.2mmol/93.6mg/dl pretty happy with that. I get back to work, get home a couple of hours late which takes an hour or so. Rush into town to buy my young Nephew some lego for his birthday, pop in to his birthday party to show my face.
No cake. No Jelly. No ice cream.
Notice that I'm feeling a little sick, perhaps a bit more cantankerous in the presence of 15 screaming, hyped up children then I would usually be. Make my excuses to leave, get in the car, test. My sugar is 26.5mmol! Hold up, I've not eaten during the last 3 hours and my levels where fine on my last test.
Quickly drive home (5 minute drive), immediately drop trousers upon entering the house in front of startled girlfriend to find the infusion site on my leg has unclipped! Doh.
Test blood ketones, 2.2. Smack a large 12 unit bolus into my arm with a syringe. Promptly vomit and here I am.
I can only of been disconnected for three to four hours max.
Seriously starting to think that I may return to MDI. The site failures, risk of scar tissue, increased risk of DKA etc is a real concern of mine.
I feel that with the knowledge I've gained the last few years, split lantus and novorapid I may be able to achieve the same results with less hassle and less risk.
A definite anti pump day for me!
Here is to a miserable evening of extra testing, perhaps a little more vomit, a probable low, then a little rebound high. Then a correction.. Then finally sleep at 2am hahah. Oh diabetes how do I love thee, let me count the ways.
