This morning I went to correct my blood sugar and could not understand why my pump kept recommending a bolus of 0.0. Then I went back and retraced each step slowly and noticed this:
Basically it's recommending no correction even though my BG is clearly high (I had no IOB). When I changed my target blood sugar upward there was no change, but as soon as I changed it to 5.9 it magically started working properly.
Of course, now this has me thoroughly distrusting the pump, since I've had several unexplained extreme highs and lows over the past few days. I've checked each time I've bolused since this morning and haven't had it happen again, and will of course try it again tomorrow morning. I've since adjusted my ISF in an attempt to get my blood sugar more stable, so I'm not sure if that will alter things.
Has anyone ever had this happen or know what the heck could cause it? The only thing I can think of is that I had x-rays a few weeks ago and the lady would not let me put my pump outside the room, she just gave me a piece of material to cover it with ... I'm debating if one incident is enough to call Animas and ask for a new pump even if this doesn't happen again ... The warranty for this pump is up in April and I do not want to be stuck with an iffy pump that isn't covered under warranty ...
