So I finally got started on my minimed paradigm revel 723 this past Monday. It's been a roller coaster with my levels after the first day.
I'm still paranoid that I'm not getting the insulin. I had this problem last time too lol. I keep patting my shirt throughout the day to check for wetness and I can swear I can smell it just slightly on the infusion set (but my wife says that's probably normal)
An example of crazy levels. For lunch yesterday, I had 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and 1 serving of chips. From my calculations:
4 x slice of wheat bread = 44g carbs
2 tbs peanut butter = 12g carbs
3 tbs sugar free jelly = 15g carbs
1 serving cheetos = 13g carbs
which gave me a total of 84g
my pre lunch levels were 154
I took 11 units of insulin (8 g / unit ratio)
2 hours later, my levels were 314
I took 4 units to correct and checked 1 hour later. I was at 254. 1.5 hours later, 180. Then checked at dinner time @ 8:20 and I was at 68
I'm wondering if I screwed up somewhere in the carb calculations
I'm waiting for my pump trainer to give me a call today so I can go over this with her but I'm curious as to other people's thoughts, ideas, experiences
I also had some highs last night as well related to some dreamfield pasta but that's a whole other topic :) 2nd time I've tried the pasta. The first time, my 2 hr levels were @ 130 and 4 hrs, I was still at about 120. This time, I jumped to almost 230 2 hrs later and an hour after that, I was at 280.
