Everyone I am new to the forum, great information, so I thought I would post my current activity, looking for feedback.
I have been type 1 for 42 yrs, currently 47, extremely active, have been on a pump the last 20 years. Time for a change, started Tresiba Weds of last week so I have taken 5 shots prior to me writing this. I have increased my dosage by 2 units thus far, doing the every 3 days prior to making the next change.
Yesterday was the best day so far, until approx. 6PM, seemed the basil had run its course. However yesterday was the first day that when I took a bolus of Humalog that it actually worked. However today I am right back to the 300’s with very little carbs. Wanted to find out if others had experienced this, I know I am in the adjustment phase, but wow, doesn’t seem that my bolus’s are even working, body is absorbing. I am assuming because I need a higher does of basil, which I am working on, but want to ensure I go through the break-in period, but this is really rough!!! All I do is bolus all day, bad thing is today the bolus’s don’t seem to work, yesterday they did. Tonight is my last night at this dose, then I will increase prob by 2 again tomorrow night.
Again looking for feedback if you had experienced something similar, again coming off a pump, not from another long lasting insulin. I am getting to the point that I might not continue to move forward if I don’t see a change, again high all day, dropping weight etc. Again looking for input.
